I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! I know we did. It was fantastic to be home together, and to watch the LDS General Conference as a family. And to know that in a little building in Mexico, Colin was watching it too 🙂 across countries, we’re still united.
Tuesday our little vacation home came to a close and we flew back to Memphis for labs. The labs informed us that Scott’s numbers had recovered enough to receive his final Methotrexate chemo.
So we spent our day getting ready, picking up Dad from the airport and then in the evening we went for a filmed interview with Marlo Thomas. We had a great time talking with her and we’re very grateful for all she has done to continue her father’s dream of St. Jude, and the heartfelt words “No child should die in the dawn of life.” It takes a lot to make miracles like St. Jude happen. Miracles that combine the best efforts of men and women who sacrifice time and energy, and the blessed consecration of those efforts that the Lord provides.
Well, Thursday was our final chemo. When the IV pole went off to inform us that the infusion was complete, there was a bit of a moment of silence and then the tired cheer of NO MORE CHEMO from a drugged and worn out Scott. This was actually probably one of the hardest chemos in a while. Scott was tired the first day, and did not feel well. BUT ITS FINISHED. Now we wait inpatiant for another night and hopefully get out tomorrow. And then scans and then…. Home.
Tonight will be a fun night. Scott slept today so now he is ready to go play. We’ll probably be having a lot of fun causing all sorts of trouble around the hospital. But, its our last inpatient stay. So we’re making the most of it. I don’t have time to really write a lot because I think we’re going to be going down to eat dinner and see what fun things we can do. But I’m giving you a lot of pictures! And we’ll do another post soon.
HAPPY NO MORE CHEMO!
