As Eli and I were driving home from the couple of appointments he had today, we were greeted by pouring rain, pounding hail, thundering lightning, glowing sunshine, and a stunning rainbow. As I pondered the visits with doctors and staff, I realized the weather was a perfect metaphor for the last weeks, months and years since cancer entered our life.
Eli’s doctor expressed surprise at how well Eli has responded to the chemo. Seeing how the doctor, when giving his prognosis over a month ago, said that Eli had weeks, or a month or two left, but who knows, Eli might surprise us. Well, we like this kind of surprise.
Amidst the tumult of of death’s doorstep, we got a miracle–more time, more Eli. To celebrate, Eli’s chest drain will be removed tomorrow, then next week we’ll go to Disneyland. I don’t know how long this positive trend will last, but I’ll take whatever God will give us.
