Clear scans

We just returned from Chloe's checkup with her oncologist. CT scans from yesterday look great (thanks for those prayers!). Blood tests show kidney and liver function is good, white blood cell counts are still a little low (which is expected), but everything else is great.

There was really no reason for us to believe differently. However, Chloe's been complaining that she's tired every day and frequently complains of stomach aches. Considering her history, there was a seed of doubt and that seed can quickly turn into the "what-ifs?"

We also had an opportunity to talk long-term and received a re-cap of what we heard a year ago at the initial diagnosis. Nothing earth-shattering, but we got a clear picture of what to expect in the years to come.

Now on to getting her caught up on her vaccinations and ready for kindergarten!

This is great news. Oh, we know that ever present worry over the slightest stomach ache -- that should stop bothering you, well, never. But thanks to God for having a child to worry about. Chloe, you are amazing and surrounded by an amazing family. Prayers will be ongoing.

Praise the Lord for clear scans! Chloe and your whole family are still in our prayers.
