Gavin, Skye and I spent the morning in the neuro-oncology clinic to go over the results of Gavin’s most recent MRI. Once again, I’m overjoyed to report that Gav’s scans were clear. This means that we have another 6 months to go until the next one, at which point they will become annual.
Hard to believe that this silly, bright, fun-loving, goofy, stubborn boy is going to be 8 in a couple of short months.
Yesterday, Gavin was having a low day. Just one of those days where a few things happened that made him feel a little bit teary and down. As he and I talked it over in the evening he said,
“I don’t want to be different. I wish I was like everybody else.”
And I told him, “Buddy, everyone wants to be just like everybody else. But nobody is.”
