Week Two: Road Trip

Day Nine: Saturday, November 23, 2019

Woke up neutral again. I’m feeling emotionally spent; numb. As the day progressed I began to feel a little better. I stayed busy at work, keeping my mind on other things. I even felt pretty good in the evening and am grateful for the moments of respite from grief and sadness, even though I still haven’t made it through a whole day without crying yet.

Day Ten: Sunday, November 24, 2019

Woke up in good spirits, still hoping and praying for a miracle, but still mentally preparing for whatever God’s will is in this situation.

Church was tough to get through today. His mom and dad shed many tears. Kohen was prayed for and prayed over.

It’s so difficult to talk to people about what is happening to Kohen without losing it . . . so very difficult.

Day Eleven: Monday, November 25, 2019

Today is the day of the big road trip to Salt Lake City, as a big snowstorm moves into the northern Nevada and northern Utah regions.

Kohen got a little car sick a few times, but aside from that, the trip was rather uneventful. We only encountered light snow during the drive; nothing too precarious.

When we arrived in Salt Lake City the snow began coming down in bigger flakes. It was a moment of beauty contrasted against the ugly that we are now living with.

After a stop at Whole Foods to eat and get Kohen some food for the next couple days, we drove to our hotel room and retired for the night. We were pooped and tuckered from the day’s seven hour drive. Tomorrow we find out if the tumor is benign or malignant.

To be continued.
