The Posts You'll Never Read

I truly only keep this blog updated for Steven. I want to record notes and thoughts of this unique journey for Steven, and I tend to edit myself before the words even begin to swirl around in my head.


One day, when news is bad or a medical procedure looms, Steven will be able to read about his determination and gather his strength.

One day, when he has questions, Steven will be able to chronologically review previous scans and surgeries and make educated decisions.

One day, possibly, this disease will make the news in a great way, and the world will be able to read about a young man's grace and courage. Maybe Steven will change a life.

One day, when he most needs it, Steven will be able to read about my determination to cure* him, and he will know how loved he is.

But somedays I feel like writing about other things. Things that drive me nuts. Things that make me laugh. Cute things. Things in this life that just aren't right. Things that have nothing to do with sweet Steven.

I won't write those stories, not today and not ever. Not here. I really feel that I have a purpose when I sit and stare at this keyboard, and I want to stay true to that purpose. But if I were to write about reality...headlines would look something like this:
