Clear!

We got a call this morning that Scarlett's MRI is CLEAR!  It will be reviewed by the full brain tumor board early next week, but the radiologist and doctors agreed it looked good.  Yea!

That makes it official: Scarlett has been TUMOR FREE for a FULL YEAR!  This is extra exciting because, according to her doctor, most recurrences happen within the first 6 months; the next milestone is one year, after which it is even less likely for the tumor to reappear.  One year out with NO sign of tumor means that we very well may have beaten this thing.  GO SCARLETT!

Tomorrow night, we will give the final dose of chemotherapy.  We plan to celebrate with some champagne for mommy and daddy and a big cupcake for little miss.  I can't wait!
