Martin was told by a team of doctors that it was highly unlikely that Andrew wouldn’t go into remission. Their hope, which was a huge long shot too, was to get Andrew down to 20% blass cells. Martin told them that that was unacceptable and Andrew would prove them WRONG! That happened after Andrew had 6 days at home. A nice welcome back huh?
Martin dealt with that information without me. He knew I wouldn’t have been able to handle it. Of course Andrew did indeed prove them wrong and did go into remission after his 2nd round of chemo and got down to 12% blass cells! After that Andrew made believers out of the all doctors. He became a super hero to us all!
As much fun as I had with Elatia on my b-day this year, it helped take a bit of the sting out, but I couldn’t forget that it was one year ago that Andrew came home for 6 days. It was the best b-day present EVER! A year ago I was able to kiss on my Muck. Hell, 10 months ago I was able to kiss on him, hold his hand, have him look at me in the middle of the night and tell me that he loved me. I like still being able to say “last year when I took Andrew to Corey and CJ’s…” or “Last year when we were in So-Cal together…” I am going to miss being able to say that in a few months.
See? Too much time to think! Waaaay too much time to think and miss! I need to get out there and do what we do best, teach and entertain!
IT’S ALL GOOD!
