Christmas Day from Markysroom--
Friday, December 25, 2009
The true spirit of this joyous day is here in this room with Marky. Heaven sent angels, seen and not seen, have ministered to him through the night. Mark is experiencing such pain and difficulty just being comfortable. His big wish for Christmas is that when he gets outa here, he is going to have the "biggest drink of water ever"!!!!
A big drink of water! Thats all he wishes for! If only we could re-direct our priorities and desires the way this precious child has demonstrated over and over! What lesson for all of us to learn from a seven year old child.
As I think of the Savior, his only wish is the same for us. That we drink of his life! That we quench our thirst in his sacrifice and love. That we in turn love one another as he loves us. I am starting to get this.....I hope you guys are too.
Marky's room is full of gifts from so many people! We are so moved by the out-pouring of love from all of "Santa's helpers"!
We still await results of the tests done during his surgery. Possibly Monday at the earliest. Then we will know how to proceed with treatment. Until then we maintain our bedside vigil and wait.
Love, from Markysmom!
