My husband and I said to each other that if there was a way to change places with our son, we would do it immediately. There are hardships that our children go through, and we watch as they grow and learn through their experiences. But this. This is something that no parent wants to watch. How do you hold the tears in when your already slender son loses 25 pounds during one round of chemo? I see death hovering and I want to scream at it to go away.
