My Caroliney warrior is officially in remission!!!!

There are no words right now, it’s hard to take it in and very emotional. We have rejoiced, cried, hugged, experienced relief, fear, confusion, emptiness, euphoria and Caroline literally jumped for joy on our trampoline after going very quiet at the hospital processing the news.

I will post more once it has sunk in properly. See What is Remission? for more insights and the emotion of remission.

One resolute, heroic little warrior!

THANK YOU ALL for your support and prayers throughout this nightmare, and thank God for the incredible blessing of Caroline’s renewed health.

This post gets in no way close to expressing my intense gratitude for this monumental reprieve. I promise to be more eloquent next time.
