Cancer kids

I went to Children's Hospital to visit Prestin today.  You can't imagine how incredibly sad it is to walk through the hallways of a children's cancer ward.  Absolutely heart breaking.  I was shocked at how much weight he's lost:  30 pounds.  He's 14 years old.  He didn't have 30 pounds to lose.  His leg from below the knee up to about half way up his femur is so swollen.  Poor kids got a port in the side of his body, with so many tubes hooked up to him.  He's been there for several days and has only eaten one corn dog.  He was such a trooper though.  I don't know what else to say about it.  Sad, sad, sad.  My heart breaks for this kid and his family.
