We cannot discount the simplest and most appreciated blessing during any prolonged medical fight! This (posted above) sort-of-poem-but-mostly-celebratory journal entry was the first time Andrew achieved the status of remission. It was a chemo induced remission and came after about a month of the fight with leukemia. That first month was hell. This journal entry was victory. It signaled that the three and a half year battle could now begin.
Caregivers and loved ones of caregivers – take every moment and every chance to celebrate victories along the way. (tweet this)
