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.


  1. That is the best news I've heard all day!

  2. extraordinary, amazing, inspiring, strong, enduring, survivors...those are just a few words that come to mind when I think of Jack and his family. Love you!

  3. I am teary eyed and have a perma-grin reading this post. You deserve all the great news after all you have been through. I pray that things keep looking up for your amazing family!

  4. Yay!!! So happy for you guys and for Jackson!

  5. So very happy for you guys:) nd so happy that Jackson is enjoying the first grade and doing all things that first graders do. Such an amazing blessing and gift.

  6. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, would you mind emailing me when you get a chance?




Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
