There, But For The Grace of G-d...

The Wife posted an entry about another child on the same treatment plan as The Boy. She relapsed at the end of that treatment, and they're trying to figure out what is happening next. Riley needs a few extra prayers right now.

Man, it's more than a little bit scary. What if that happens to The Boy? What about the increased risks of leukemia when he's a teenager? What about complications for his kidney and subsequent surgeries that will require? (What about complications to me, who seems to be the most likely donor at this point?)

Oh, man. I feel horrible for the child, and in many ways, for my own. Makes ya think, doesn't it?
