Zoey journeyed those 8 months with such beauty and grace and forgiveness. She really and truly did. Nothing was clearer to me, than that, as I poured over posts these last few days. And that beauty and grace and yes, even that forgiveness, she did not get from me. That baby girl, is all you.
Yesterday Zoey was at Children's for her 4 month oncology check up. It was a very long day but well worth it. Zoey's labs were the best they have ever been. She has had what we like to say, sluggish bone marrow, for nearly 3 years and finally has just gotten with the program and is kicking out an abundance of all she needs to keep healthy and give us some reassurance that she is on the right track. We have been cut loose for 6 months. Twice a year. Can you believe that? There was a day, and it didn't seem all that long ago, that bi-yearly check ups seemed so far out of reach. But here we are. Here she is, because once again, it has been very little us and all her. We never lose sight of that. And we never stop acknowledging the gift of our days with her. Ever. Thank you one and all for your phone calls, messages, texts, emails and comments on FB . We have felt the love and have appreciated it more then you could ever possibly know.
This is the face of beauty and grace. This is the face of continued remission. We are blessed.
I just loved this picture of Auntie Zoey and Charlotte. They simply adore each other.
