Having a child who is terminally ill is one of the worst nightmares that a parent can ever experience. Unfortunately for Ruth, she was forced to deal with this tragic occurrence when her little boy Nolan’s stuffy nose turned into something far more serious.
UWhat was originally thought to be a garden variety stuffy nose and sniffles case actually turned to be rhabdomyosarcoma, a very rare form of cancer that attacks the body a highly aggressive manner. We cannot begin to fathom what this mother was feeling when she received this horrific piece of news.
It soon became all to clear that Nolan’s days were numbered and that this mother was going to have to say goodbye to her precious little boy. He was able to survive for another year and a half, but he would eventually succumb to the realities of his condition and perish in his mother’s arms.
In an effort to handle her grief, Nolan’s mother took to Facebook in order to release some of the emotions that were involved. This moving post served as a way for her to close a very difficult chapter in her life and she described her final hours with her son in painstaking detail.
By the time Nolan was ready to move on to a better place, it had become painful for him to even breathe. The boy even had the most touching final words that you can possibly imagine, as he said “I love you, Mommy” before finally falling asleep for the last time, while his mother sang softly in his ear.
Here you can read her whole story:
“Two months. Two months since I’ve held you in my arms, heard how much you loved me, kissed those sweetie “pie” lips. Two months since we’ve snuggled. Two months of pure absolute Hell.
I’ve wanted for a long time to write a little about Nolan’s last days. His last few days shined with how amazing my son is. How beautiful he is. How he was made of nothing but pure love. This may be long, but bear with me, it’s agony unlike any other.
