I have been getting texts and emails asking if we have Jack’s urine results and we don’t. I even wrote Eshun today to ask him and he just responded that there is nothing back yet. Ughhhhhh. I so wish there was! Jack is doing great and loving school so that is what should matter anyway. He is happy and healthy so I know these results will be just fine!
I couldn’t sleep last night and it has been really bothering me that I have been so down this week…I think one of the reasons is that this week would normally be the scanxiety week. We have been doing scans every 3 months for so long and usually we would be mentally preparing ourselves for them right now but since Jack has been doing so well, he doesn’t go back until the 6 month mark, which is November. I looked up on Jack’s blog to see what we were doing 1 year ago today and we were having his cancer free party! That has to be a good sign, right?! I went back 2 years and he was just finishing his 6th round of chemo and preparing for stem cell transplant. That time was so scary and to think that we are almost 2 years post that is unreal. I remember that time as if it was yesterday.
On September 3rd, Jack will be celebrating his 2nd birthday. They call it a birthday because when you have a transplant, they basically take your body defense down to 0 and wipe out all of your healthy cells and are “reborn” again. In the meeting we had before transplant, they told us (in so many words) that Jack would be on his death bed and his healthy cells were going to bring him back to life. Scary? Just a tad. But Jack, in typical “Jack” form, sailed through transplant and set records on recovery time. This kid is a fighter…he is a survivor.
I will update you when we here any news at all….
Thank you for checking in on us…it means so much.
Also, I am going to be putting in an order for bracelts so if you would like to show your support for Jack and our fight to raise awareness, make a $5 donation and we will send you a bracelet. All money raised from bracelet sales will benefit the Children’s Fight for Life night!!
