Dr. Pollard called at 2:53pm yesterday to say that Allistaire’s bone marrow is clear. There is no cancer to be seen.
The joy and relief burst in and is seeping in. I’m sure it will feel more real once those tubes are gone. Thank you for all of your prayers and love and encouragement.
We went to my brother and sister-in-laws today for the first time since last summer. Tomorrow we’re going up to Port Townsend. It is so amazing to be able to get away. Monday Allistaire has her final labs drawn from her tubies and a discharge examine with Dr. Pollard. Tuesday at 7:15 in the morning we are to arrive at the hospital for her “line pull,” scheduled for 8:30am. Then we have to wait 48 hours just to make sure she is healing up well. Then…we’re getting in the car and heading to Montana. We plan to stay about 2 weeks and then I’ll bring Solveig back with us. I think we’re going to do lots of little road trips and see many of the faces we have so missed in the six months and longer.
I’m going to bed. The inspection for the house is scheduled for 1:30pm tomorrow. I’m just trying to wrap up details and get on the road. I’ve already been fantasizing about driving I-90. I cannot, cannot believe we are at this point in the journey. I told Dr. Pollard that is has felt like trying to drive out of some war-torn country and anticipating check point after check point, holding your breath and hoping that you get through.
Thank you Father for your generous provision. Thank you for simple, plain, ordinary, glorious life!
