first set of scans

waiting for the ultrasound
big day at DeVos.
chloe had her
first set of scans.
chest x-ray,
ultrasound.

i held my breath,
what could they be
looking for?

when they took out
her kidney,
supposedly they got
everything.


even though
the situation
is not ideal,
a cake to share at the clinic
it certainly has not been
the toughest road
in terms of cancer.

so, i was waiting for
the other shoe
to drop.

everything
came back
clear.

we are on track.
we are looking toward
the little patient
the finish line.

chloe goes in
to check her counts
next week.
her next
chemo appointment
is on halloween.

we're hoping to
be done
by christmas.

then we're
going to have
one big party.

Welcome to scanxiety! So glad you got good news! We'll keep you and your family in our prayers every night. Tell Chloe that her fellow cancer warrior (my son Luke) asks how she is doing every day.
