Chemo Hats and Interpreting Sickness in a Unique Way

By Nancymccarroll
This is the second one off the hook:
Chemo Hats and Interpreting Sickness in a Unique WayThe same pattern of crocheted hat finished this week from this free Bernat pattern:
Chemo Hats and Interpreting Sickness in a Unique WayThese hats are, of course, for my daughter Julie.  Julie had her first chemo treatment this week, along with the requisite anti-nausea drugs.  After three days post treatment, she is still not keeping anything down. Sigh.
And speaking of sickness and how we deal with it, I am borrowing this from Abigail at Abigail's Alcove:
...When I found out that my newborn needed emergency abdominal surgery, I immediately asked to have her baptized. If my baby girl had to undergo all of that suffering, I wanted it all to mean something. I wanted her incorporated into the mystical body of Christ. I wanted her hurt to save souls.
A birth defect is different from the ordinary effects of sin. My baby girl didn't get hit by a bullet or poisoned by an environmental toxin. The Creator of the World, the One who lovingly knit together my baby's body in the womb decided in His infinite wisdom to drop a purl stitch in the formation of my baby girl's intestine.
Futher reading can be found here by Abigail about her infant daughter's sickness.  It is well worth the read, and gave me pause after digesting her interpretation of why this birth defect happened to her child.  I hope you take the time to read it.
