I was filling up Alexis's pill box last night and realized- this is the last week I will put chemo in those slots! Friday is it. She had her last IV and IT chemo last week. Our clinic stopped doing BMB's at the end of treatment, so she just has a follow up appointment next week. I have come to realize that this is just part of the journey that is ending. We lose that sense of security you have before you find out one of your children is sick. I will always worry about the cancer returning and what over two years of chemo may have done to her that we don't see just yet.
Thanks to all of you for the support over the past couple of years. I am pretty quiet on here, but read so much and appreciate everyone's comments. I know all of you truly understand what it is to live this life.
That's how I felt last week. It was as surreal as when he first got diagnosed. 3+ years. But Aidan was so thrilled today. Today was Aidan's last 6mp! More than me HE was SO excited. His port is out, and he's proudly showing everyone his scar. I thought I would feel more nervous than I do. My SIL almost made me cry. She held me long and hard. Long enough to remind me just how rough it was. This week will fly by and suddenly you are OT! It came really fast. So glad that you are here. Just so glad for you both.
All the best!
A major milestone in this incredible journey...I hope you find a quiet moment to celebrate the success of THIS milestone. Mostly, I hope the fears begin to leave you and become a distant memory. To you, to Alexis finding a new normal with good health and much needed peace! HUGS.
