The Fifth Dimension

The bravest girl in the coolest t-shirt

So today begins the fifth cycle of maintenance! And for the rest of these three-month cycles (maybe two or three more?), Georgia only has day surgery once per cycle - progress! The Finish Line really is coming into focus more and more, especially since we learned today that we actually set a date to stop meds, somewhere around the two-year anniversary of the start of Interim Maintenance (again, that was April 29, 2010 - for those of you keeping score at home), so technically, we could be having a big ol' party nine months from tomorrow! Wow. And as fast as the past 19 months have flown by (mostly), it will be here before we know it.

Today's 22nd day surgery went very well, as per usual. This time, the note we wrote on Georgia's back said, "Expelliarmus!" with a "No Pokes" sign below it. Dr. Neff loves Harry Potter, too, and when he came out to give us an update after the procedure, he had his papers rolled up like a wand, casting spells left and right. These two get along very well, have I mentioned? : )

Georgia's counts look great, and besides a sore knee that we're keeping an eye on, she got the official go-ahead for the BIG adventure she's been waiting a long time for - CAMP! In about 10 days! We've got five days of steroids and a whole bunch of packing to get through before then, but she is bursting with excitement. More on that later!

Thank you, as always, for the prayers and good thoughts today - they really make a difference and mean a lot to all of us. Please keep it up, and have a great weekend, y'all!
