Thank you for that.
It has actually been a respite not to know - we had the whole weekend to focus on helping Chloe recover from surgery.
She has made HUGE gains. In addition to walking to the nurse's office for a treat last night, Chloe was able to "unhook" from her IV pole and go downstairs to get ice cream. She has been writing on the windows and doors with window markers. She seems back to her old self - it even feels hard to keep up with her.
The bandage from her incision was removed today. It is cute to watch her, she keeps pulling up her shirt to look at the incision and then she looks at the port - she is getting to know a whole new her.
Our oncologist let us know late this afternoon that the pathologist is still studying the tumor. They have confirmed that it is a Wilm's tumor. This is the best news we could expect. This form of cancer has a very high cure rate. In the doctor's words, "it is the best cancer to get." Hopefully tomorrow we'll learn more about the treatment.
We continue to be overwhelmed and amazed by the care and love of friends. Gift cards, treats for Martha and Henri, people checking our house, food, handmade cards, prayers and more prayers. We are so thankful for all of you. Again, we feel the presence of God in all of this. Last night I almost forgot about what we are dealing with - my heart was full to bursting with all of the love from friends, family, even people we don't know. Thanks to all of you!
