It may seem like such a minor thing to most, but Jake is drinking milk!! This is the kid who for all his three years, a cup of chocolate milk was his constant companion! He was happy, chocolate milk, he was sad, chocolate milk, he was going to bed, chocolate milk.
Since this all started in August, the meds. and seizures have altered him so much. He lost his wittiness, his desire, his happiness, and his cravings for...milk.
Today he has been asking for milk.
He even asked to go to bed with milk! His little sippy of milk has always been his "security blanket." To the extent we would simply put a teaspoon of milk in the sippy and he was fine to go to bed.
The milk is just a little spectrum in the symbolism that is milk.
Jake has been making very witty comments again, the first I remember since August. He has a fire back, the first since August, and he wants milk!!! The first time since August!
This road is surely rocky, and I am certain we will see more bumps, humps and curves, but it is certainly fantastic to see the light.
You shall worship the Lord your God, and I will bless your bread and your water; and I will take sickness away from among you.
God Bless~ Christine
