7 Months After Chemo

7 months after Jackson's last Bone Marrow Transplant, and I am ecstatic to share our good news.  Jackson has officially been declared:

In Remission!!

I almost fell off my chair when the doctor actually said the word "remission" to us.  I didn't think we'd hear that word until Way WAY down the road.

Here we are, living our life like normal.


I never thought we'd find it this way again.

Jackson started 1st grade this week.  Like a normal kid.  Happy.  Excited.  Nervous.  Normal.

He can run, jump and keep up with the other kids... he's just a little shorter.


I never thought I'd want to be normal so badly.

But maybe normal isn't the right word.  Maybe I should use the word 'Extraordinary'.

Yes, that's it.

We are living an extraordinary life.

My son is extraordinary.

My son is an AT/RT Survivor.
