He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Going Well

Things in the Czorapinski house are going well. You don't see that statement too often on here but I have to say that it's the truth. Adam and Joshua LOVE school. As a matter of fact, I went to pick them up the other day and the teacher only brought out Adam. When I said, "aren't you missing one" she said that Joshua had decided he didn't want to leave school. Funny kid. They are enjoying school and socializing so much that it brings tears to my eyes. It's the little things in life that most people take for granted that mean so much to our family.

As for Noah, he had surgery on Thursday and all went well. He had a knot on the back of his leg and we were unsure as to what it was. When you are surrounded by kids with cancer and tumors all the time of course your mind goes to dark places. We had consulted a surgeon at the recommendation of Noah's pediatrician, who felt that it was nothing to worry about but just to be sure, he would remove the knot. So, surgery was this past Thursday and preliminary results are that it was just a calcified knot and nothing serious. Whew!

So life has been busy. We not only have a million doctors appointments, we now have two different school schedules to keep track of. Busy times but life is good!

Loving Life!

Adam and Joshua LOVE pre-k. Okay so it was only day one but they couldn't stop talking about all that they did. I knew half of their day by the time I had them both seat belted in the van!

What am I going to do?

Tomorrow is the day. It's the day that Adam and Joshua will go off to school for the very first time. Pre-K. I am sitting here tonight and thinking that for the past four years, I've had these boys by my side. Every day for the most part and tomorrow, they go off and start school. Of course I'm worried about germs and sickness and all the yuck that they will bring home. I know that we'll have to spend a few days at Hotel Hopkins because Joshua picked up something at school. But, they need to go. Adam has been held back and has waited to go to school. Joshua needs to go off and learn that mommy isn't always there. And well, Mommy needs to learn what to do with the next chapter in life. I've always thought about what to do when we get past the cancer stuff. I have ideas and thoughts but cancer has consumed so much of my life that I've never got past the "day dreaming" part. The reality is that life is going on with the cancer or without it and the kids going to school is a part of that. The boys have their plan and now I have to figure out mine. Of course that's after I catch up on what's been put aside for the past four years!
