it's been a while!

Things have been so crazy around here that I haven't updated this blog for a while!  Carter is doing really well, has had two clinic visits since the last update.  Everything has looked good.  He also had one ER visit in the middle of the night.  He was diagnosed with "the beginnings of pneumonia" and was on antibiotics for 10 days.  Other than that, nothing major to report on our awesome Carter.  He'll have his last clinic visit at our hospital in a few days.  After that, we're heading across the world to FRANCE!  We already have a clinic visit set up with the new French hospital in January.  Let's hope there's some English speakers around!  Carter's doctor is very supportive and not worried at all about our big move.  I, on the other hand, am terrified about adjusting to a new hospital, new doctors, new nurses, new routines, taking the bus instead of driving our car to appointments, the list goes on and on.  Overall, I'm very excited about our new adventure but this aspect of it is not something I'm looking forward to.  Hopefully it will be a quick and easy transition.  We will really miss our current doctors and nurses.  They are all so fantastic and really care about my little boy.  It will be hard to say good-bye to them in a few days!

We also had a little "graduation party" for Carter from the Chemo Pal program.  Usually this kind of party is reserved fo whenr chemo is finished but since we're moving we got to have Carter's party early.  It was great to go out for frozen yogurt with Jason and Jeannie (from the Children's Cancer Association) and say thank you to them for all their support and help through these past two years.  I wish I had remembered to take a picture while we were there!  This picture was from a while ago, but it will have to suffice.  We have grown very attached to so many people who have helped us along this crazy cancer-fighting journey.  I hate good-byes!
