Superman

Superman has nothing on my son. He's been hit with so many drugs, chemicals and medicines I can barely keep up with them all. He's had test after test after test and he's been laying in a hospital bed for weeks. Yesterday he lost his hair. Today he had a tube put down his nose, he didn't like it, but he tolerated it. He listened when I warned him it would hurt and did it anyway. We went for CT scan later and he lay there still and waited while 3 people picked at tubes in his chest. The sound of the machine startled me, but he lay there and took it like a man.

I've never been more proud of my son. He's my new superhero.

It seems as if you are his superhero as well. It is your strength and example that is leading your son. Let that be a motivation for you to stay strong and positive in the long months to come.

This is so unfair to all of you (especially Henry.) I can only imagine how long the road ahead must seem. Hold on as tight as you can to each other and don't let go. That's what will get you through the hard times.

Henry, you are a hero to us all!

Love,
Shanda

Bryan, Tara and family -

We have been reading this site and following Henry's progress and are touched by Bryan's words of hope and faith. I wish there was more we could do for you all but know that Henry is in our son Joey's healing prayers every night. Joey sends Henry "pink heart healing energy" and we send you all love, too. I have passed on your info to lots of folks who are keeping your family in their prayers.

Bryan, thank you so much for your detailed updates on Henry. You are an amazing writer and seem to capture the emotion of the day. I laugh, I cry but you give me hope. Yes, Henry is a superhero
