Yesterday was the day. Reid was scheduled for his one year follow up visit at MD Anderson. We left home at 6:45 AM and didn't get home until almost 7 at night. It was a long day, but the news was good. His PET scan was clear. There was no cancer!!!
On December 21st it will be exactly one year since Reid received Keith's stem cells in a stem cell transplant. He has gone one year without cancer! After three rounds of chemo and two stem cell transplants no cancer could be detected.
He's been through hell and back the last four years, but he's never given up and he's never stopped smiling.
Today he's tired and sore. He received 6 injections yesterday. A flu shot and more childhood immunizations. After a stem cell transplant all the childhood immunizations have to be given again. I guess he wasn't really smiling then, but he does smile most of the time.
So, I guess you could say our Christmas present came early this year.
Thank you so much for your support and prayers.
Now I'm going to go ahead and breathe. I've been holding my breath for weeks.
