John just got home from a coaches meeting. He sat me down on the couch and said “I have something to tell you”….followed by silence.
My heart stopped beating.
“We got a call today from Peter’s oncologist office”. I started to cry.
He added “After talking to the experts at Children’s Hospital….and they have decided that Peter needs no more chemo!”.
At this point I started shaking uncontrollably! I had a count down going to Dec 27th which was supposed to be end of treatment.
We are done!!
I know there will be appointments, follow up, checks up, etc for a while……but I have this overwhelming feeling that Peter has been given his life back. He can start a chemo free life! A life of learning, playing, and loving – without the yucky feelings of chemo clouding him.
There are no words to truly capture how blessed and grateful I feel right now. So I am just going to wrap this up with a YA-HOOOOO!!!
…..this is Peter when he started treatment back in October 2010……
