Still nothing much to report. She moves her arms and legs and opened her eyes. No test results back.

For every (I mean every) holiday, she sends a card to Gabriel. What do I do about his birthday? Do I get a card and send it to him from her or just leave it and let her do it when she is up to it? Knowing her she already has a card, when she went to get her stem cell she made sure to have a Thanksgiving card with her to mail.

(((Rachel))) this is very hard! I am praying for you and your family.

Please let her send the card when she is better. If Gabriel asks, tell him she is sick and can't do that right now. The truth is always best with children, even when it is difficult. Smoothing over difficult situations with white lies from adults leads to anger and resentment and lack of trust.

I continue to think of your sister with hope.

I agree with lisa. Gabriel is old enough to hear his aunt is sick. If he asks about the card, remind him she’s sick. If he doesn’t say anything, let it go. I think we adults inadvertently cause anxiety in kids by sharing our fears. I don’t believe in lying to kids, but sometimes it’s really better to say nothing.

Thanks for keeping us posted. I am praying hard for her. I agree about not getting a card from her. He’s old enough to understand.

((Hugs))

Continued prayers for your sister, you, and your family. As other posters have said, wait and let her send it. Gabriel will understand. ((Hugs for you Rachel.))

I agree the truth is always best, but you don't have to go into detail. Just tell him she is sick and cannot send one right now. Its possible that he might not even mention it, especially at his age.

The prayers for all of you continue!
