*There will be no new post tomorrow as my thoughts are on this courageous young boy, Sebastian Yanquelevech (who is now 8 years old), his mom and larger family, and the very intricate surgery he will undergo tomorrow-- Thursday, March 5th (at SickKids Hospital here in Toronto), to remove the rest of a 'growing' brain tumor which was first discovered when he was just 4 years old. Sebastian experiences seizures daily, sometimes up to five seizures in any one day and to stop these seizures from causing more harm means removing the tumor in its entirety. Sebastian did not want his mom to feel alone while he would be in surgery so he started asking about the internet and ways to get his story around the world so that we could send love, comfort, and strength to his worried mom, by hugging each other. I know Sick Kids Hospital quite well and have come to highly respect their amazing expertise and dedication to the best treatment and care possible for children, with supporting my sister and niece years ago when we may have had to face a serious and delicate health crisis. Looking back, I could not have landed in Canada soon enough at the time... We thank God every day for his divine intervention that was nothing short of a miracle, and treasure the fine team at SickKids.
Sending Big Hugs to Sebastian, his mom (Nadine), siblings: Julien and Mia, and his wider family today and every day.
Thanks everyone for your extra support today and always. xx
