Zane has had his first seven day stretch fever-free in six weeks now. Praise God. The doctors still don't know what caused five weeks of fevers. WBC 17,000, 84% lymphocytes and AST over 100 were his only striking labs initially. A million obscure tests are still pending. It would be nice to know, but I'd choose a healthy son and not knowing over the alternative.
Along the lines of sons and health, today is the one-year anniversary of Zeke's death, our nearly-adopted son. Nobody knows if we ever would have really had the opportunity to legally adopt him, but there was an immense bond and a physical, emotional and spiritual pain the day he died.
I had been torturing myself looking at pictures of these two precious boys, imagining if Zeke had lived and imagining the worst for Zane. Now that Zane is healthy once again, I can look at the pictures and peacefully recall happy memories with Zeke and anticipate a lifetime of father-son love between Zane and me. I don't believe I will ever see Zane the same. He will always be my miracle baby and every moment will be savored.
