catching up

it has been a long time since we have posted.
since the POP, chloe has returned to DeVos twice
for antibiotic infusions.
she was able to go a few days after the POP
to deliver the many poke prizes that were donated.
it was a great moment to be able to give back.

that first infusion involved 4 pokes.
now that she doesn't have a port (hurray!),
the nurses have to access a vein to give the medicine (boo!).
even though i offered to switch to oral medication,
chloe still wanted to continue with the monthly infusions.
delivering the poke prices donated at the POP

after the second infusion in march,
even though it was much less traumatic,
chloe agreed to try the medication.
she started on april 23 and for the most part,
things are going smoothly.
we would appreciate any prayers,
she'll be taking this medicine
6 days a week through july.

celebrating a magical triumph

we also took a trip to disney world
during spring break.
it was a wonderful time away,
our first trip out of michigan
since this all started.

it was not a make-a-wish trip,
it was actually a holland family trip
that has been in the works for 4 years.
we are grateful that we were able to go.
it felt like a big celebration,
with many special touches to celebrate
the end of the cancer battle.

now we are pushing toward the end of school,
we are looking forward to a time of rest,
a time to make more memories.
