He is, in a word, amazing. That picture hits home, it really, really does.

Keep fighting, stay strong, and hug/kiss the #@#@#@#@ outta that little fighter every chance you have.......

An absolute precious picture. I want to say so much, but my words will not ease the pain of what you are going through. The life in your little man's eyes is just breathtaking. We can fly missle half way around the world, but we can't do anything to help Connor is just heartbreaking. I check on you all a few times a day, and keep you in my thoughts. You and your wife are very strong people, keep it up!!

Don't know what to really say. I just wish Connor did not have to go through this. I hope you and your family can find strength and comfort somehow.

Again , I want to thank everyone for everything . Your support through all this has been overwhelming . It really is incredible . I was hoping to have a few open ears (eyes) and a place to vent, maybe keep some normalcy in my life and what I got in return is far more than I ever expected . There are so many people I want to thank, I don't even know where to start and when to stop . From Russell Wilson RCs, to Drew Brees BGS 9.5s, Game Used Hats, Ravens Lots, Necklaces, Prayers, Tigers-Brewers-Lions, Every single person who read this thread and thought "man that sucks", Everyone representing Team Connor, everyone who changed their picture to his, Posts, Private messages, Positive thoughts, Donations, Gift cards, Kaepernick 3 color Jersey autos, Joe Flacco Jersey RC autos, Michael Jordan sketch cards, Visits, Cards and so much more all from you . You know who you are and so do I . It all means alot . I cannot begin to thank everyone enough . Even those who just read this to read it . It sucks to have to go through so much pain and heartache to really see how great everyone can really be . As stated in prior posts, restoring my faith in mankind one post at a time . Day 35 tomorrow . Couple good days, couple more would be nice . Knock on wood ....

Anyone in Indy or the area . I have 3 tickets I got for Christmas to the knicks pacers game in a couple days ... I don't see myself making it ... maybe with my dad and brother, just not sure . Checking options

Finally seeing some light at the end of this tunnel ... home within a month . Two weeks is the new goal . Meeting with hospice on Friday or Monday for home care . We just want him home so we can spend as much time together and feel as normal as possible for as long as the good lord gives us with him . Whether it is a day , a week , a month, a year , a decade or the rest of my life . He is such a fighter . It is so incredibly sad and unfair . Day 40 tomorrow ... I believe .

My heart aches for you, Dustin. I am happy for the optimistic outlook --- make the time as special as possible, make the memories. But still, to your point, life is and can be very sad and unfair. It is so delicate and precious, so many fail to recognize that until it is too late. Our thoughts remain with you every step of the way.................
