Moving On

One week ago, we marked Georgia's Two Years Off Treatment anniversary. The next day, we went to her last clinic appointment with Dr. Neff. It was fairly unremarkable, aside from the pesky cough she's had for three weeks, the fact that she is nearly 5'9" tall, and the reality that after four years and four months (to the day), she'll never walk those halls as a patient again. A happy, blessed event, but also a bittersweet moment, thinking of all the big work she's done there.

My heroes

I'm not sure how you thank someone for saving your child's life, but if it can be done through tears of all kinds, I've thanked him a million times over the last four-plus years. Much love and gratitude always to P Neff and the Children's Blood & Cancer Center at Dell Children's. And friends, please, please support childhood cancer research.

Finally, from the St. Baldrick's blog today, a post about Ivy's beautiful note to Georgia. We are so very proud of both of our survivors!
