Thursday, September the 10th, was 5 years since Elise completed her Chemo treatment. It has been 6 and 1/2 since we quit mourning the Downs and started celebrating it. Love and thanks to CHOA at Scottish Rite for being incredible and being a part of our miracle. And, most especially, thanks to God for giving us what we didn't want to protect what we treasure. AML survival rate with Downs 98% compared to 30% typical. Yay, God! Thank you for Elise, twice! I still think this is a bigger annual celebration than her birthday! Thanks for celebrating with us!
