Tonight i came home from work to find Marky and Jonah in the kitchen.
Monday, October 18, 2010
They were just hangin out snacking on stuff when Marky remembered...
"Oh yeah, here mom.." then he gets in the fridge to show me....
It was a STOOL SAMPLE !
Mark had been to the Dr. today. He sent them home with a stool sample collection kit.
Of course when the "time came", neither me nor James were home to help with the "collecting process".
So Jonah did what any best friend would do.....
HE SCOOPED UP THE SAMPLE FOR HIS COMRADE AND PUT IT IN THE COLLECTION JAR !
Jonah is 9 years old !
Jonah is a true soldier and warrior just as Marky is. Never leaves a friend behind. Always walks beside, never in front.
When Marky was in his throw up stage of the disease, Jonah would hold the "barf bucket" for Marky and gently encourage him.
Jonah used to carry Marky's TPN backpack (remember the liquid nutrition than ran thru his pic line to feed him) as they would walk around the house.
Who does that ! especially a 9 year old !
As expected, I broke down in tears as I realized just what these two had managed
to accomplish all by themselves.
What does the future hold?
Whatever it is, we are in good hands.
Lynette.....Markysmom, Jonahs grateful "othermom"
