Because it rained all day for two days, the days and nights were rather damp. We didn’t have too many trick or treaters here; may be twelve including Andrew and Davis.
Davis was dressed as the Creeper(?) supposedly a monster from Minecraft. I am not sure if I am even spelling these names right. This is what he looked like. You can see Saadi outside the door. Funny thing is, Davis doesn’t like candy. He picked a Jolly Rancher to please me! Hope you all can see these pictures.
A little while later Andrew came with his dad. His costume was packed in his backpack. I asked him to put it on, and he said that he didn’t want to. Sayeed said that he didn’t want to put it on all day, even at the school. So I told him that if he didn’t put it on then Baba would take it and wear it on himself. That made him think a little, and said “No, it is mine!” So I told him that in that case he should hurry up and get it on before Baba can get to it. That did the trick.
Here is the little shark, smiling and laughing and wondering at the different candies. When I told him to go over to the other room and get some candies, he said, “No thank you!” Later on he grabbed a couple of lollipops.
Here is another picture of Davis. Noah stayed at home to give the candies out.
Early this morning, just after I had finished my prayers and meditation, and had just got into the kitchen when Saadi called. She said that this is the first day that Dave has felt good since about May or June. His pain was much less, and very bearable, he slept well, there was no nausea or vomiting and he was hungry and was able to tolerate food. He thought that the Radiation treatment was finally beginning to show improvement. Needless to say, Mohamed and I were beside ourselves with gratitude to The Almighty for this blessed news. I went right back to the prayer rug to offer thanks. Dave has four more treatments next week and I hope and pray that he will feel wonderful in the weeks and months and years to come.
I am grateful to all of you who have blessed my son in law with your sincere prayers and kind thoughts. I am deeply humbled by your compassion. Please continue to think of him. My dear friends who have written to me personally, and you know who you are, I have no words with which I can thank you and tell you how blessed I am to have you as my friends.
Love you all, a lot. Muah.
