Christian and I (Sarah) are the parents of a 4 yr. old, beautiful, sweet boy named Sven who was diagnosed with Leukemia on 4.19.09. Immediately we started chemotherepy treatment for Sven with the Pediatric Oncology Center @ Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island, NY. I will outline some highs and lows and most of all type some frustrations away :-)

IT'S COMING ON THE BIG DAY! Sven will be 5 on Thursday 3/11. Whooooo hoooo. My little guy has wanted to be five since he was 2 and I remember the big croc tears at his 2nd birthday party when we told him he was 2 he cried and said but he wanted to be 5. Christian and I will wake him up in the morning with ice cream cake and balloons in bed, sounds exactly what as parents we should not do but considering the rough year he has had to endure we would fly in on unicorns if he wished it. We will then let him pick out as many dunkin donuts munchkins he wants to bring to school for his classmates to celebrate his birthday with him. I then told him that he could play on the school playground for as long as he likes. Because of the big boy bullying he has a new found fear of playing by himself at the school yard but I also let him be fully aware that both Papa and Mama will pick him up from school and will both be there to watch him on the playground and the best part of my night....letting Sven know that his Papa would be bigger than the big boys on the playground and that with that he could run, play laugh all knowing that he had the biggest boy on the playground (Papa) watching over him!!!


  1. Hello, I am following your blog, I'm from the Mom Bloggers Club:-)
    I just had to say that you and your beautiful child will be in my prayers! You are a very strong mother!
    In regards to the bullying, how terrible! This is why I chose to homeschool my son ( and will continue with my daughter when she is school aged ) It would just be too much for me to take to watch my child go through something like that, especially with all your little one is going through....stay strong,I look forward to the post where you tell us that he's in remission & all cured:-)
    Have a great night!

  2. Crying to be 5, too cute! Now the time has come. How fast they grow. Sounds like he had the best birthday, especially with Papa in his corner. Sweet.
