Toddler Tells His Mom He Will Wait For Her In Heaven Before He Passes Away

Saying goodbye to a loved one is not easy. Sometimes, death steals the person we love in the most unexpected time. But for this mom, her toddler was able to bid farewell in the most bittersweet way possible.

Little Nolan Scully was only three-years-old when he was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of soft tissue cancer. After his initial diagnosis, his family decided to start a Facebook page so they could post their wonderful moments with him before the illness took him away for good.

In one painful post, his mother, Ruth Scully, shared Nolans’ heartbreaking last words. This is what he told Ruth before he silently bid goodbye to the world and left his heartbroken family behind.

Ruth posted: “On February 1, we sat down with his ENTIRE team. When his oncologist spoke, I saw the pure pain in her eyes. She had always been honest with us and fought alongside us the whole time, but his updated CT scan showed large tumors that grew, compressing his bronchial tubes and heart within four weeks of his open chest surgery. The Metastatic Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma was spreading like wildfire.”

She added, “She explained at this time she didn’t feel his cancer was treatable as it had become resistant to all treatment options we had tried and the plan would be to keep him comfortable as he was deteriorating rapidly. After a while, I composed myself and went into Nolan’s room. He was sitting… Watching YouTube on his tablet.”

Ruth then shared her conversation with Nolan. She first asked him if it hurts to breathe and Nolan said “Well… Yeah.” Then she said, “You’re in a lot of pain, aren’t you, baby?” He hesitated but said, “Yeah.”

Then she assured Nolan that he doesn’t have to fight anymore. And she saw how his reaction changed into pure happiness as he said, “I DON’T? But I will for you, mommy!”

This is when she realized that her poor son was fighting because he wants to do it for her. But she said, “Nolan Ray, what is mommy’s job?” And in a big grin, he replied, “To keep me SAFE!”

Though it was difficult for her, she told him, “Honey… I can’t do that anymore here. The only way I can keep you safe is in heaven.”

“So, I’ll just go to heaven and play until you get there! You’ll come, right?” he said.

“Absolutely! You can’t get rid of mommy that easy!!” she said,

“Thank you, mommy! I’ll go play with Hunter and Brylee and Henry!”

That must have been a heart wrenching conversation for any parent to have with their baby. But she has to do it. She knew that she could not let him suffer any longer.

Nolan, unfortunately passed away a day after Ruth had this conversation with him. She asked him if she could take a quick shower. He said, “Um, okay, mommy. Have uncle Chris come sit with me and I’ll turn this way so I can see you.” Then he went into a deep sleep and just never woke up.

She further wrote: “I stood at the bathroom door, turned to him, and said, “Keep looking right here, Poot, I’ll be out in two seconds. ” He smiled at me. I shut the bathroom door. They said the moment the bathroom door clicked, he shut his eyes and went into a deep sleep, beginning the end of life passing.

When I opened the bathroom door, his team was surrounding his bed and every head turned and looked at me with tears in their eyes. They said, “Ruth, he’s in a deep sleep. He can’t feel anything. ”

“I ran and jumped into bed with him and put my hand on the right side of his face. Then a miracle that I will never forget happened… My angel took a breath, opened his eyes, smiled at me and said, “I love you, mommy,” turned his head towards me and passed away as I was singing ‘You Are My Sunshine’ in his ear.”

Nolan woke up out of a coma to say he loved his mom with a smile on his face. For Ruth, Nolan died a hero. Ruth will always be reminded of the star that she lost and will continue to post on the Facebook page specially dedicated to him.
