Maren had her last dose of steroids tonight! Though she's too little and too cranky to understand it sometimes, things are looking up. At least we hope so. I recently read a quote from a little boy who had undergone a bone marrow transplant (BMT in leukemia world), and it was something to the effect of "Smile today, because tomorrow could be worse." Ha. I loved it. Anyway, I hope I'm not getting ahead of myself by practically having a party in my head to celebrate the end of steroids(for the next 3 mos), not knowing what's ahead for her with the upcoming Cytoxan and Ara-C, but we might as well enjoy the good moments while we have them. The picture above is Maren sporting her new "stripey hat" knitted by a sweet friend and getting ready to go through the McDonald's drive through. She gets these cravings for french fries, and even though I try to talk her out of it the steroids beat me every time. Who knew I could I be outwitted by someone else's medication?
