"You may breathe normally"
I am happy to say that Steven's scans were clean today! He had a blood test, a chest CT scan and an Xray. All looked normal (okay, the Xray has some crazy new bone growth, but no sign of a tumor). The CT machine said, "Take a breath in and hold it. [pause] You can breathe normally again." That is exactly how I felt when Steven's oncologist told us the scans were normal. The sun was shining as we left the hospital and I couldn't help but feel very hopeful. I think one of the hardest things about this is how it just feels so beyond my control and so unpredictable. What a lesson in walking by faith. But hooray! He gets to go on his fieldtrip tomorrow and is back at school this afternoon! That is a happy day.
