Almost five years later.......:)
Well, after feeling a bit like "Senor Frog" for a good while, we saw that sunrise....
But nooooo, not this time. This time it's.... enter beautiful sunset/sunrise, place the happy smile...drumroll please...... There are NO numbers, his counts are too low to report as a number :)
How flippen amazing is this!!??
This is something we have all been hoping for, waiting for, for almost five years now. And yes, I am aware that they can bounce up again, and down again and go on like that driving me close to nuts as possible........ but for now - for now I smile deep inside and outside and the world is beautiful and life is just that extra bit better than best.
And with this news came a need to say a huge Thank You to so many that have endlessly held my hand, listened to my gripes and worries, felt my tensions and lived with my moods in the less than nice times. Although these past years since Steven was diagnosed have been difficult and scary, they have, in retrospect, not been terrible. Steven is alive and doing well, we are all getting on with our lives and we have all grown into better people because of the whole circumstance.
You come from all around the world with widely varying circumstances, but each with a good heart and a hand held out. Thank you. Thank you!
And so, with these wonderful results in hand, we head into the summer months of 2011 and year number six living with cml in one of us. What a wonderful way to close off these cold winter months and start a new year.
And just as a funny thought.... just a few years ago, I would have been absolutely offended at any part of any of my kids being described as "weak positive" and I would have been horrified at any test result with so many zero's... now I am soooooo happy! Funny how things change.....gotta love it. :)
I wish smooth sailing on the oceans of life for everyone.
Love and light
