Three strikes and your out leukemia!… Day 1191 20FEB12
Wonderful news friends of Joshua! We got the results of the three tests that they ran on Joshua from his blood, spinal fluid, and bone marrow and they all came back NEGATIVE for cancer!
This is the best news we have gotten in 3 1/2 years and we are all overjoyed. Joshua was over playing at Carly's house when Renee got the news from the clinic. We weren't expecting any results until next week but they came back sooner than expected. Renee called Joshua straight away to give him the news and he was pretty happy. I was still at work when she called and couldn't wait to get home to give Joshua a big hug. He still has several weeks of chemo to finish but as far as we are concerned he has won! This is truly a red letter day :)
In other news we are preparing to return to Camp Sunshine in Maine the day after tomorrow :) We are all super excited about getting back to the far north and enjoying some seriously cooler weather compared to home. Tomorrow we will finish packing and preparations for a very early departure Wednesday morning. There will be a bunch of families from here going up this time so we all will have lots of good friends to hang out with and enjoy the snow. Should be a wonderful trip and a nice break from Florida for a few days.
So everyone clap your hands and yell woohoo! Joshua is cancer free!
Boy does it feel good to be able to say that :-)
