Clinic Day #29 — This is a good one!!!!

March 12, 2010

So here’s how my conversation went with Dr. Mixan as we huddled over Tanner’s count sheet yesterday:

Dr. Mixan: “Her counts still look good. Her ANC is 2100.”

Me: “Oh, good.”

Dr. Mixan: “We’re going to bump her chemo up a bit to 75% and see how she does on that.”

Me: “Okay. “ (I pull him away from Tanner and talk quietly) “So, um, what about school?”

Dr. Mixan: “Yes.”

Me: “Really?”

Dr. Mixan: “Really.”

Me: “Really?”

Dr. Mixan “Really.”

Me: “REALLY?!!!”

Dr. Mixan: “REALLY!!!”

Me: “Tomorrow?”

Dr. Mixan: “Why not?”

This is the part where I dissolve into embarrassing Mom tears and hug the doctor. I turn and tell Tanner who is now officially the happiest girl in the world. She spread her joy all over the infusion room and everyone was congratulating her and telling her to have a good time.

So, she’s going to school this morning… for the first day… about 7 months late.

Wow. I’m speechless.

  1. Conor told me at least 20 times since yesterday after school….”Mom, I am so excited about Tanner coming to school tomorrow/today!!) Hope she has a wonderful day.

  2. This is such great news, Beth … and Tanner and John and Jake!!!
    I am so excited for you and know she will have a great day!
    I am sure that Mrs. O’Hara was not the only one with tears in her eyes!!
    I know I have got tears in my eyes just reading this awesome news!
    Yeah!! Have a great week-end!

  3. It made my day when I was dropping Claire off this morning and saw you all walking Tanner into school. My first instinct was to roll down the window and cheer really loud but I was afraid that Tanner would be embarrassed!! 🙂 I know that you all are overjoyed by this milestone. God is good and has blessed us all by being able to share in your joy!! Congratulations Tanner and welcome back to school!!
