Gabey D. is our wonderful firstborn son. He was diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) in May 2007, and has been going through a 3 1/2 year chemo treatment. We are trusting God, and believe He will show Himself Mighty.

Physician Heal Thyself

For years, I've always given the advice of how important positive thinking is.
Well, this weekend, I really needed to take my own advice. I was so depressed all weekend, and crying all the time. I was so worried all yesterday that Gabey would get another fever, and that we would have to take him in again.

I had to give myself a talk last night before I went to bed. I was reading in Psalms, and just had to lecture myself on thinking positively. Gabey is in remission, and in a few years, we'll be done with treatment. Things will come up, but God is in charge. I have to not forget that. All the worrying in the world on my part isn't going to change anything, except make us all miserable. This morning, I woke up and decided that today is going to be a good day. Gabey is going to be fine, we're going to be happy, and get through the day.

The sun is shining, and God is with us.

Shari,
This is my first visit to Gabey's blog. I know this is going to be a long road for all of you, but in the end he will be completely healed and go back to being the healthy and active little boy that we all love so much (the sickness could never take away his sweetness!). Of course you are going to have days where it seems like you can't hold it together, but we know that you will. Your positive thinking and your faith will get you through this. You also have a big support system whenever you need it. Give my nephew a big hug and kiss! XOXO Kris
