|| Tuesday, September 12, 2006 ||STRICKEN ONCE MORE,BUT HE'S STILL STANDING
Pyro was stricken with the E. Coli bacteria, thus the low levels of white blood cells. E. Coli causes hemorrhaging, and therefore, blood loss.
But I was informed that Py's bowel movement is showing signs that he's on his way to recovery already... that he's beaten this one... that he's still responding to medication.
He's still fighting.
And we're just so, so proud of him.
I think because I was crying all the time for the past few days, my husband thought to start an e-mail movement to get in touch with whoever CAN make Pyro's wish happen: to be visited, or to meet Batista.
Personally, I don't really think Pyro would mind if it was Undertaker or John Cena who he meets (and actually, he might be too tongue-tied or scared if he does meet one of his wrestler idols) so long as he meets one of them. It's a cute wish really, made by a 3-year old... and it's not like he spends all his waking moments asking for his wish to be granted (because right now, all he does is eat boiled eggs and rest).
It's a long shot. So far, we've gotten e-mails telling us that they have forwarded the e-mail to someone who CAN help (sports writer for Inquirer, and someone who works for GMA's Wish Ko Lang).
Ask and you shall receive... :) And we really hope Py will be rewarded somehow by something... to inspire him to fight some more.
Friends can be found in the most unexpected of places, in the most unexpected of ways. My Blogberks have all sacrificed something to pool their money and give it as a belated birthday gift to Py.
They were my friends, but now they are also Pyro's friends...
I've said it before, but I will say it again... cancer, for all the pain it causes, also inspires such love and kindness in people. And you discover that no matter how personal the battle, you're not alone in the world.
There IS always a helping hand, somewhere.
There IS always a ready smile.
Love IS really just around.
And you hope some more, and believe some more, because your spirit is reminded of a reason to.
Pyro, at 5 months old (Dec 2003)
