Dear Friends and Family,
Today Reba had surgery to remove her port!!! We are so thankful to share this news as it means treatment is over for now!
Reba will continue to be under the careful watch of her fantastic doctors and have MRIs and MIBGs (the next ones are in early January).
Because her port is now out, if/when Reba gets a fever we no longer need to go to the hospital for IV antibiotics!
Over this past Thanksgiving weekend we have had time to give thanks and reflect with gratitude. We are so grateful for many things. Neuroblastoma can slip through the cracks and grow for years before detection – we are so grateful our pediatrician sent us to Stanford “just to be sure.” All we really have is our health. As our little Reba has gone through treatment and is now in a more watchful stage, we so appreciate the fragility and strength of life and the pain that comes with the price of love.
