March 9, 2011: in the hospital for two weeks and Sy comes out in top. Yesterday Sy went to the play room for 2 hours (longest he has been out of his room since being admitted). After playing some Monopoly, life and with the trains Sy headed back to his room. At 1am Sy held Veronica's hand while trying to go to sleep and asked her, "Vero how do I pray to God?" Through this tough time we all find ourselves asking for help and praying for Sy or asking what we can do to change the circumstances, but when an 8 old asks this...you can't help by cry (At least I did). So Vero told him and together they prayed.
Today, Sy had a great day! He went to school at the hospital for a few hours then came back for lunch and then returned for more school. This was so great to hear! Sy is feeling better getting up and around on his own proving he is the champ in this fight. Then Matt and Vero got the word, they get to go home tomorrow! Sy will get to celebrate his birthday with his friends and family before returning to Lucile Packard for round 2 of chemotherapy. This Saturday Sy will also be throwing out the first pitch at the Academy of Art University Softball game where we will be holding our annual Swing For A Cause game and raising money for Childrens Cancer. So come on out, cheer Sy on and help us raise some money. Don't forget you can also make donations directly to Sy at any Wells Fargo. thank you for the prayers, keep them coming because this fight is not over.
