Today I had a difficult time watching one boy about nine years old, in the onkology ward. He is so skinny and doesn't want to eat. Usually when he tries he has intense mouth pain. The food burns and it hurts his jaw to move. While trying to eat a bite of mashed potatoes silent tears were rolling down his face. His mother then asked him if he would like to try soup instead. That was actually one of the few things that went down. She cooks all day in hopes that he will eat, and he doesn't. When he does they are free to go home.
On a happier note, the little girl that was in the room next door with the same Leukemia as Jemma went home today. I am happy for them and look forward to seeing them in a few days when they return for treatment.
