This kid we can call a survivor. A four-year survivor.

Today’s scans, which included blood work, a chest x-ray, EKG, ECHO, and abdominal ultrasound, all came back clear. Unchanged, no evidence of disease, and (my fave) unremarkable. Which always strikes me as ever so remarkable.

As we walked out of the Clinic hand in hand after five hours of appointments, he swung my arm and casually said, “That was fun.” And he meant it. Which also strikes me as ever so remarkable.

And most remarkable of all is that in 365 days, two measly scans away, we’ll be able to use a whole different C word in reference to Austin:

Cured.
