Bianca is all set for Camp Quality in January and she is so excited. Tonight she got to meet her companion who is lovely and I think the two of them will get along really well. They will have to dress up as some or the other super-hero so we'll have to come up with some ideas of something to make. They try to encourage the kids to make something which is good so as parents we won't have to end up spending hundreds of dollars just to get a fancy costume.
The next few days will be magical and special filled with excitement as the girls count down the days till Friday morning. It will be a time where I will be grateful that we have come this far, that we remained standing, that we remained strong. I've always said I don't regret the journey we walked - we learned so much and got to know so many people along the way. Whilst the cancer journey will always be part of us, it does feel like we have managed to slot into this post-chemo life - it's weird though because I expected it to be much harder to find our new normal. But here we are.
And then this time is also a time where I feel so sad for others who will have a real difficult time during this time. I think of Kyah's family, Christopher's family, and so many others and I so wish the outcome could have been different. And then little Elijah and his family - he has just gone through the whole Bone Marrow Transplant process and is currently in hospital with an infection. They are stuck in Ronald McDonald house far from their home, family and friends now at Christmas and there is a real risk that Elijah might very well still be in hospital on Christmas day with his infection. They've had a pretty tough time too and I simply can't wait for the day that they can go home. Know that you all are in our hearts and in our prayers all of the time!
During this time I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a very very happy New Year. May all your dreams come true!
