Today is Mollie's 100th day of leukemia treatment.
I never thought I would find myself in this position- the mother of a child with cancer. I worried about accidents, choking, whether she was going to the right day care/preschool and eating enough protein. Cancer wasn't even on my radar 3.5 months ago.
Oh how things change. Our family has been through the ringer. Nothing can prepare you for something like this. We've learned a lot and changed for the better. We've had tremendous support and made new friends.
Mollie is stronger, more outgoing, braver, and more articulate than ever before. I told her today was 100 days since she started chemotherapy and asked her how she felt... she said, "Great" with a big, genuine smile!
We still have a long road ahead: intense chemotherapy, two years of maintenance, and a lifetime of careful watching (or worry?). We also know that it can all change in a moment, so we're busy enjoying what we have.
