Second day of chemo...

Last night was a pretty rough night. Why can't hospital beds be a little more comfortable considering how long we are there? Lucas was up a lot and the nurses figured out that morphine is the best pain med for his little body. He was a little fussy today and it's so hard to know if it's from pain, hunger, nausea, or if he's just tired and fighting it. All of the nurses just love him. He's only 7 months old and already a flirt. He seems to find comfort in his 3 B's. Binky, Bear, and Baby Einstein DVD's. In fact he has started a new habit of throwing his bear over his face when the doctors or nurses come in. Maybe he thinks if he can't see them, they aren't there? I don't know but it cracks us up. His aunt Marnie was kind enough to stay the night with him tonight so that Aaron and I could come home and spend some time with Kaden and Jonas. They have been shipped around from house to house and Jonas asked me the other day if I could babysit him at our house. It about broke my heart. It's so hard to find a balance when all I can think about is the well being of our baby. Kaden is having the time of his life though. It's a party everyday! Aaron just spoke to Marnie and she said Lucas is doing well. Whew....I guess we can get some good sleep tonight. I just wanted to shout out to all of those who have helped us with meals, taking the boys, messages of love, etc. And especially to all of those who have prayed for our family. Everyone tells us how strong we are and that we are handling this so well. The only reason we aren't a total mess is because we feel strengthened by all of your support and prayers. We love all of you and wouldn't be able to do this without you. It's going to be a long road but I know that we will learn so much from this trial. So much good has already come from it. We are strong and have faith that no matter what happens, everything is going to be O.K.



  1. Shannon,

    I'm sorry to hear about your little guy. You seem to have really good perspective. What hospital are you guys at? We're coming into UT in July, maybe we can stop in and see you. I'll be thinking about you and praying for you too.

    Love, Kellianne

  2. Shannon, so sorry to hear about this! I will definitely be praying for you and your family! Your faith and strength are amazing. Hang in there. :)

    Love, Carrie (Folkman) Reckling

  3. Aaron and Shannon, we were very sorry to hear about your little man. We know he will be well taken care of there. Take care of yourselves. Your family is in our prayers.

    Dave and Randi Bevan

  4. Shannon,
    I talked with your mom today. I wanted to let you know that I have sent out an email to ward members in 7th Ward and asked them to pass it along to anyone else that knew your family. I called Caroline today and told her to pray. YOu are all in our prayers and thoughts. They have great meds now for those taking chemo that helps with all the side effects. I hope Lucas does well with the chemo . Give him a big hug from the Suber Family. Love, Kay and Yon

  5. Shannon and Family,

    Like my mom said, She sent out an email and asked us all to pray for you and your family. I will do just that. I am sorry to hear about the long journey that is ahead of you. I do not even know Lucas but my heart is filled with so much love for him.

    Sending love and prayers your way,

    Caroline (Suber) Lee
