Evy finished the chemo portion of round number 16 yesterday. Once we recover from this one we only have one more round to go. Really hard to believe! I just can't wait for the suffering to end. And I hope it will be her last chemo EVER. Yesterday she could not keep any food down but today she has done okay. Tomorrow we are going to see Disney on Ice with Growing Hope and the girls are very excited. Stella keeps insisting that mommy will be ice skating, too.
Yesterday marked one year since she had her stroke while going down the steps. We are not the same people we were one year and two days ago. As soon as autumn began I started having flashbacks to everything that happened last year. I have finally been able to listen to the kid's cd that we were listening to that month in the car before everything happened. Now we are listening to it all of the time and when I hear the song that I played on repeat to keep my eyes on the road for the hour + trip back to the hospital when Brian called to say she had a tumor I don't even cry. Halloween will be strange because that was the day when we realized the doctors were wrong.. no fracture, definitely a stroke. I am so relieved and thankful that she is here with us one year later. AT/RT is a beast and we have been extremely lucky. We are so thankful for the health of both of our girls!
Than you for sticking with us and reading our story. It is nice to know that there are people out there who care about us!
