Five Years

Five years ago tonight, Finn took his last dose of oral chemo.

We didn't have a party. We said a casual, "Hey, did you know you took your last chemo five years ago today?"

We ate ice cream (except Finn who didn't like the ice cream I made. He ate chocolate covered strawberries instead). We went for a bike ride tonight and marveled at where we live. We yelled at the kids just like we would on any other day.

Normal days are so good.

Another milestone.

Another chapter.

We continue to know how lucky we are, and we continue to be very, very grateful.

Thanks for still being along for the ride.

I agree, normal IS good.
Finn kicked cancer's ass and WON.

I'll always be along for the ride, because it's such a fun ride. A big WOO HOO to Finn and to you, Eammon and Declan for riding the waves all these years.
