This past week clinic turned out to be more good news. The doctors have given Alice a green light to come off one more medication. Such a relief to us that she continues to improve. Not to mention having to deal with one less medication makes every bit of difference in the morning and before bed time. In addition, the conversation turned to discussion on when Alice can have her central line removed. A major factor in this decision is her proving that she can maintain good blood levels. Yet, this is very exciting to me. I mean, its been over two years now that she has had a hole in her chest, and more years with a PICC line in her arm. I doubt she can remember life without having to consider getting in the bathtub or jumping on the trampoline without caution because of it. Hopefully by the end of summer it will become a reality. When that happens, its hard for me to believe that this chapter in our lives may be coming to a close? Wow. I really can't imagine it now. I'll believe it when I see it. Nevertheless, its good news and we will ride that wave until we can catch another.
Below is a clip of Alice performing her first magic trick of the disappearing sucker. Still needs a little work, but its cute just the same.
