Anonymous said...

I'm so thrilled for you having completed your treatments!!! 21 years ago this month my Mom was just starting her treatments and I took her to all of them with our toddling daughter. Cassandra would quietly walk from bed to bed as they waited for their treatment and smile at people. I think she was a great distraction. I'm happy to say that my Mom has been cancer free since then so here's hoping for the same record for you. And 21 years from now you'll still be blogging away!!!! WAHOOT WAHOOTT!!!!!!!! Blessing on your day.
