No Mo Chemo

Reid had his last chemo almost 3 weeks ago.  As a matter of fact, he would be starting chemo again today if we weren't finished.  On Monday, January 21st, he had his "No Mo Chemo" party at OLOL.  It worked out perfectly because Wyatt was out of school for MLK Day, so he was able to be there with us!
We have had several nurses at OLOL that we have absolutely loved! Derek and Sara are our favorites.  Derek is a hoot.  He often dresses up in costumes and comes to visit kids on his days off.  He has a heart for these kids.  Derek only works on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  He was our nurse several times, and thankfully was with us for this final round of chemo.  We were so glad!  Reid loves Derek....he especially loves to shoot him with his toy guns.  Derek plays along.  He goes out to the nurses' station, and then he comes back bandaged up.  One time he actually bandaged himself like a mummy.  The last time he came in covered head to toe with band aids.  He made Reid belly laugh on several occasions!!! I am hoping that Derek rubbed off on one of my boys.  I would love for one of them to be a doctor or a nurse or something in the medical profession.

Our family and friends joined us for the No Mo Chemo Party on Monday.  We were beyond excited to get out of the hospital and get back home!

"Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn."
Romans 12:15
See you later alligator! We pray we never grace the halls of this hospital again.  However, we have been blessed to be able to be home for several treatments.  There are MANY families that we have met at St. Jude who have LIVED there for a year or longer!  We are thankful for God's provisions to allow us to be home as much as we have been!
Victory Dance and Walk Outta Here!
