We crossed over the threshold and into the hospital room. Benny was so cute. He wanted to wheel his suitcase down the hallways of the hospital, but when it came time to get out of the elevator on the 4th floor, he didn’t want too. ( I don’t know how he knew what was down the hall and thru the doors.) He’s smart and picked up that neither did we!
It’s been a long while since we are back in this part of the hospital. Hashem orchestrated His magic and sprinkled His B’samim ) spices already early on this visit. We were assigned the first room that we ever had when Benny was first diagnosed. If you religious blog followers remember it is the room with the “Eagle” above the bed. This time we noticed one extra bonus, there was a misplaced sticker put of the on the tv monitor. The sticker is a “locust.” (you will have to go back to the beginning to find the significance) . It was at that moment that my husband and I looked at each other and felt Hashem is with us every step of the way and IY”H Benny will be just fine. We also got one extra bonus, a room with a view, a gorgeous view of the skyline of downtown LA. Thank you Hashem for the small but huge symbolic gestures.
Benny is a few minutes away (12:30 am) from receiving a blood transfusion. This should help prepare his body for the intense treatments that will begin around 10 am IY”H. Please Daven that this blood be a good match. Please Daven that tomorrow’s treatments and the next few days go smoothly, without complications and do what they are intended to do. Heal Benny 100 % IY”H.
