I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

Central line is coming out...


Tomorrow is the day. Kristen will have her central line surgically removed. I'm a bit hesitant as now every blood draw will require a poke! By the way...I have loved the line. This is her third one, both times when she had ALL she had a line, it stayed in for about 2 1/2 years. This time it has been 8 months. As the chemotherapy is complete this is the last step. Luckily we have had no problems with the line and no infections. It will be nice not to have to worry when she takes a bath and the daily flushes with heparin will be no more. This is another step back to normalcy... I think.

I know what you mean. I loved having a line in. No pokies, but your right, it is a path to normalcy, and baths are a lot easier.
