Our family of 6 (dad Adam, mom Sherry, big sister Abby and little brothers Isaac and Brady -- who was born on December 14, 2010) joined the ranks of pediatric cancer fighters when our 4-year old son Logan was diagnosed with a dangerous and highly malignant form of brain cancer in mid-August 2010. Logan's cancer journey began abruptly on Sunday, August 15, when his right eye suddenly turned inward during dinner. Twenty-four hours later, we were checking into Children's Hospital Oakland and finding out that life sometimes takes you places you'd never, ever imagine yourself going.

I know, I know: I just posted! What's this crazy chick doing posting again?! Honestly, it's because my heart feels so full that I'd be doing myself a disservice if I failed to share the whys.
In a nutshell, Abby and Logan love each other so much that it makes me melt. For anyone unaware, they're just under 21 months apart and have 'grown up together' in the truest sense of the term.
I've been eavesdropping on them as they've played today, and have come to really and truly internalize how very much they've missed one another; how torturous the months of separation have been. Although they certainly have their moments, they also share a love for one another that's unparalleled. Each has a special tone of voice reserved solely for the other; whether or not they're conscious of that fact is irrelevant. It's just so beautifully true. Their play flows so smoothly, so effortlessly from one activity to another and there's just such a tangible happiness that permeates their space when they're together that it takes my breath away.
Oh well; this entry is coming to a close sooner than anticipated as Logan just chased Isaac into the family room with a Buzz Lightyear sonic ray gun (also known as a bubbleless bubble maker) and I need to moderate. I'd hoped to include some quotes from my dynamic duo, but maybe later. Maybe.
