End Begins

And so it comes to this -- on Friday of this week, we will enter into the hospital for Vampboy's last chemo round.

We are ready, yet we aren't. We are excited, terrified, tired, energized -- it is a schizophrenic time. But ready or not, here it is.

To mark the event, there will be some special posts, starting Friday night -- so if you're around this weekend, tune in for sure (or check back next Monday and catch up). This is a profound moment to share with our community -- and you, dear reader, are a part of it.

In the meantime, and with thanks to Metrodad for posting this in his blog, please check out the video below. It's really intense, really beautiful, and captures what cancer can do to a person.

To Friday....

....WOW. It's ironic, yet also heartwarming and strangely reassuring, to know that such incredible beauty and positivity can come from such heartache and from "seemingly" no-win situations....much like watching a beautiful coloured flower spring from the cracks in grey cement - so unexpected, yet so tangible and real. One's strength of spirit can be an amazing thing as the doctor in that inspiring video showed, and YOUR strength of spirit, Vampdaddy, definitely comes shining through your blog and into your readers' hearts. May this new milestone in your precious little VampBoy's treatment mark the beginning of continual good health and healing, and may it be testament to the fact that battles, no matter how burdensome, CAN be won. Much love and strength to you and your family.
