VB 5, C 0

Once again the machines whirl, the heart stops, and the anxiety of everyday life (something about an election?) takes a back seat to questions of life or death.

Today the answer is LIFE, as VB flies through another MRI with a "Free of Disease" scan. This one marks a milestone of sorts, as VB is now over 2 years from diagnosis with no sign of recurrence. While in the end this particular form of cancer doesn't allow for taking solace in such benchmarks, it feels worth noting.

Of course, there is another major event happening today, and as I type the ending is unknown. Regardless of the outcome, I will sleep tonight and dream of a future that almost wasn't but now....is.

Hooray to all in the Vampfamily! This is the best news I have heard all week (and that includes hearing the results of the election...which made me delirious with happiness.)

Wonderful news! (And with that other event from the night now resolved, perhaps there will be a brighter future for more children, as Lance points out.
