Three is a Magic Number

Did you start singing as you read the title of this post?  If you didn't catch the reference, let me help you out...


...you're welcome!

Now on to why "Three is a Magic Number" today:

1. We went to Children's Hospital to meet with the neurosurgeon for the 6-week post-craniotomy follow-up.  She said that KK looked like a completely different child than the one she first met in the ICU and that she saw a sparkle in her eyes.

2. We made our way to Brigham and Women's Hospital for the final day of radiation therapy.  KK was in tears saying goodbye to all the wonderful people there.

3. We then headed over to Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund Clinic for her first blood draw on the PowerPort.  Her blood work looks good.

So, with these three appointments completed successfully, we have no plans to return to Boston until July 29 for Brain Tumor Clinic day which will include an MRI and meetings with KK's team.

By the way, I love the reference to "faith, hope, and charity" in the song above.  It is from 1 Corinthians 13:13 and is also translated "faith, hope, and love".  We have been clinging tightly to all three during this journey!
