On Tuesday, May 15th, exactly 5 months from her first day of chemo and 5 1/2 months since we first heard Allistaire and Leukemia in the same sentence, the morning of the “line pull,”Allistaire sports her tubies for the very last time.
48 Hours later we were in Bozeman and Allistaire was ready for her first bath without impediment, without para film, without press and seal, and without caution. She seemed to notice none of this, not even that her tubies were gone. But she was never-the-less excited as she repeatedly declared, “I find a booby! I find a booby!”
