And now for "Deep Thoughts by Joe Tubo". Today's episode ponders the question he asked me on the way to radiation this morning: "Mommy, how old is God?" I said, "Joey, God created the world, so he is older than the whole world!" I thought that this would convey to his 4-year-old mind God's Infinite Reign over us. So, he says, "Oh-is God 36 then?" (No-Joey-that would be how old I AM) That just goes to show you what he thinks of my youth. We have 2 more radiation treatments. I told this to Joey this morning and he said, "Then, the BUBBLE-RAMA!!!" That is what he calls the bath he has been waiting on. We have held off until the radiation is completed to safe guard against washing away the marks on his abdomen. The radiation techs have drawn with marker numerous X's on Joey's stomach to mark the radiation field. Following the treatment, we went to the clinic for a check of his counts. They are down a bit from last Thursday, but still no need for a transfusion. He is holding his own. We follow-up again on Thursday. He has not needed a transfusion since October 20th. Praise God! At mass this weekend, Father John spoke of signs. I do see signs each day that God is answering our prayers. Everyday that Joey gets up and starts in chattering to me, I see it. Joey saw the sun today and said, "This is a BOO-YAH day!" Amen.
