A picture of Little Warrior


Thought I'd share a picture of Little Warrior. I probably won't leave it up permanently, but as an Ostara/Easter/Passover/Friday gift ...

This photo was taken yesterday. Not bad for someone less than two weeks after getting double partial-nephrectomies and having a grapefruit and an orange removed ... sum total, 2 lbs.

Oncologist talked to us today. It's mostly good news, but always the warnings not to get too comfortable. First issue is the post-op chemo and how will she respond to it, especially after she turns 11 months (a couple of weeks) and her dose is doubled.

And then there's the "we'll be scanning her every 3 months in case it returns."

But today, things are good. Today, she is happy. Today and today and today.

I am always amazed that they can smile so soon after treatment. It does get better. There are rough seas ahead. I can not believe it has been 21 months since diagnois and we are finalizing our Make-A-Wish trip plans. It is do able. I will keep checking in. Your journey is a different one but having cancer kids is the same road.
