My head is spinning. David just finished his first radiation of the week-one down, four to go!! His chemo treatment should be here in an hour or so. The oncologist just came by and it appears that after his chemo treatment then we will be discharged! I cannot wait to take Rock Star to the Pendlton's condo and just snuggle and rest. I am so over hospital beds!!
The oncolgoist just blew my mind though. We will be staying here in Cville through Friday to go through all the radiation treatments, but we can come home this weekend!!!!!!!! Praise you Lord Jesus!! The Lord has orchestrated this perfect for Kyle's 10th birthday! I have happy happy tears streaming down my face as I write this. This journey has taken us through such a long, dark, and scary valley that I see a beautiful mountain in front of me and I am so happy. All five Robinsons will be under one roof this weekend to celebrate Kyle's big double digit birthday.
We will have to return Monday at 1:00 for chemo which is an "easier" week of treatment with only the Vanchristine. (I am probably spelling it wrong) and then Monday afternoon we can come home. She then blew my mind and said that Tuesday if he was up to it, then he could start to return to real school on TUESDAY!!! Oh the happy tears that I am crying now at the thought of my David being back in Tena Hubble's room surrounded by his friends, "Colwins", Miss Alley, Mr. Nutter and all the other special people there. During the long scary nights here I have entertained myself by visualizing all the milestones that I cannot wait to meet and walking DAvid back into MPS has been one of them.
I am really bawling now because I know we still have such a long road to endure with chemo, but we are already celebrating small victories like discharge and a possible return to school next week. For this Momma this is huge and I am right now in 7 Central praising our Lord for his faithfulness to our whole family as we have endured the last 18 days of the nightmare. Oh how faithful and merciful our Lord has been to us all and I am just so thankful.
So in about an hour or so I cannot wait to pack up Party Central and move the party to the Pendleton's condo. I cannot wait to snuggle in a real bed and get away from the confines of this place. We have received such outstanding care that it is going to be hard to say goodbye to some special folks here, but we are thrilled to be considered outpatients now. So for the next week the updates from come from the condo, but thank you dear family and friends for your prayers and love. I know we still have a long road in front of us, but checking out of here today is such a victory and we are relishing it here in Party Central.
