This day was so difficult. Here it is, the hurtle you've been training for. The moment just before the race where you are stretching and preparing for what you will face.
Caden was too small to take blood in the typical way..so They had to draw blood from his head. There are no words that can express how difficult it is to hold your baby boys head while he is screaming in pain because there is a needle being poked inside of his head. And he's just looking at his mom, his protector, not understanding why she's allowing him to be in such pain. Screaming at the top of his lungs. Trying to understand why this is happening.
Just remember, sometimes our children will not understand why we allow pain to happen, but soon they will understand that it is ultimately for their benefit. That we hurt so much seeing their pain. But sometimes it takes pain, to heal.
