I can’t believe it, we are here. Completion of treatment. Holy crap! Tomorrow (or today) is her final surgery to remove the last central line. I spoke with Savannahs PA yesterday and actually got a referral to her pediatrician to begin re-immunization befor school starts. A pediatrician! A regualr primary care doctor!
