Over a year ago, I had logged in to blog on Oliver's birthday only to find a HORRIFIC message in my comments from some anonymous coward. You could tell that they just wanted to inflict pain. I read the message and just started bawling. It took me to a place that I didn't want to think about. I got on Facebook and was on the DIPG support group page and quickly learned that this has happened to MANY of us grieving parents. I just don't understand people who want to just destroy people with their words and actions. It truly makes me sick.
So, I've been gone for a while, but feel the need to start journaling again. It is a nice way to preserve memories... stories and pictures... for my family. I had wondered if I should just put my blog on private to avoid hurtful comments, but realized that I get more loving and supportive comments than hurtful ones, so I'll keep it public. Ollie's story needs to be shared and I love to see that people still stop by and learn about him every day. It makes my heart happy to know that he is not forgotten.
