We had clinic this morning to get cleared for Sam's last scheduled admission next week. It went well and his counts looked great. We also got to visit with Sam's buddy Matthew who was there for his last dose of chemo! Woot! It's so nice that we're finishing things up at the same time and I hope to get the boys together for normal boy time.
We don't want to get ahead of ourselves but we asked when we could expect to get his central line taken out. Dr. Cheerva said hopefully we can have it removed after his next scans. I would loooove for those scans to be clear. Oh, man would I freakin' love that. He'll be finished with the accutane in September and he can have his NJ tube out then. And that's it. No more treatment. We'll just scan every three months and pray diligently.
Pray that next week goes quickly and easily. Pray that Sam will be cancer free. And pray that we can close this chapter of our lives and move on into a new normal and long-term cancer survivorship.
