We were in the Hem/onc clinic again yesterday for Julia’s lab check. The procedure is quick and painless … for most … but it sets fear in my sould each month. I am guessing Julia is feeling the same way because she promptly passed out after the fingerstick and blood draw. Yup. Green, pale and gray … then slid right out of her chair. So the visit ended up a bit longer than necessary. Sorry to our fab nurses who are never anything but supportive and nurturing to my baby girl, while secretly rolling their eyes and giggling with me at the obsurdity of this. After 5 years of daily and weekly chemo, lumbar punctures, IVs, port accesses and bone marrow aspirations … finger sticks have pushed her over the edge.

Well all of this was worth the drama when Jen called with her PERFECT results! Yes! It has been 15 1/2 months since Julia completed treatment and she remains CANCER FREE!

Off to the pool to celebrate!

Peace,
