-Celebrating the end of Chemo with the ward primary. They decorated the house and gave her gifts. As you can see by the smile, it was very much appreciated.
If you haven't noticed, my blogging is getting fewer and farther between. I do believe it's part of moving on from cancer. Amanda ran a fever several days ago. I called oncology since she's still is immune compromised (should improve in about 1-4 more months). I was told to treat her like a normal kid. It brought a smile to my face to hear those words and a feeling that I cannot describe. I cannot put into words how wonderful it feels to finally be here. And yet, I'm very exhausted and emotionally worn out. It's a strange mixture of thoughts and emotions that I find myself sorting through. I do believe that what she has gone through has served a purpose in her life and will shape the future of our family. I've never understood how people can be grateful for their trials. I still struggle to grasp this. But I can say I'm grateful for what I have learned and am still learning. I know that Amanda has a purpose in her life and that is why she is still here.
