inspiring Story of the Week – Eternally Grateful



Finalist Tales2inspire annual writers' contest

by JoAnn Jamora

Eternally Grateful is an inspiring story to give hope to any parent faced with their child’s serios illness .

As my six-year-old son climbed onto our pediatrician’s examining room table, I focused on my breathing. The doctor was normally energetic and upbeat, but today was different. As he pressed on my little boy’s belly, I watched his expression morph to one of concern. He hesitated before speaking, but my mother’s intuition had already kicked in. Somehow I knew something was terribly wrong.

I forced back moments of panic for the next several days as one technician after another guided Tyler away for test after test: x-rays, ultrasound, and finally a CT scan. I tried my best not to succumb to the fear of dreaded possibilities. After all, the word possibilities can also evoke a positive outcome, but worrisome thoughts prevailed over anything good. Was I going to lose my little boy?

The dreaded test results arrived, and they confirmed all that I somehow already knew. No parent should have to be faced with such news. No parent should have to watch their child undergo grueling treatments during the days, weeks, and months ahead.

But eighteen years later, I remain eternally grateful for its outcome.
