• A Look back

    March 31st, 2011willLiam

    March 31, 2010 is a date that is burned into my mind for life; one year ago today was the day that I learned the word Neuroblastoma.  Over the course of this past year, we have experienced an amazing passage of time where it seems to crawl and fly by all at the same time.

    As I look back, we learned to spend holidays and special family time (Pa’s Birthday) in the hospital, I remember wishing everyone a Happy Easter and thinking how strange it was that we were not going to see friends and family.  I was wrong about not seeing folks, as we quickly learned to have family parties at the hospital (which is not an easy thing when you consider the size of this family). We also welcomed a new hospital family into our lives and formed friendships with our healthcare team, I would imagine we will keep many of these extraordinary folks in our lives for a long time.

    The Kelly Family had a lot of ups and downs looking back (Central line falls out, Chemo - Round 2, Round 3, Round 4, Round 5, Round 6, Surgery, Stem cell harvests and 2 Stem Cell transplants and of course our current go around with antibodies),  but we made it through all of that.

    I just wanted to say a quick thank you to all our friends and family, without you we would not have made it through this year.  When this is over, I look forward to spending more time with all of you!
