#1 - it doesn't mean we can relax with Max's treatment
#2 - it doesn't mean his cancer is "cured"
#3 - it doesn't mean his cancer will not come back
Too many times, in reading other families blogs, I read the cancer has suddenly, horribly, taken over their childs body. Out of nowhere... it just comes back full steam.
Don't get me wrong - I'm happy Max is headed in the NED direction (he has a radiation set-up appointment on Tuesday to zap that bothersome spot on his spine) - but the nature of this disease is unforgiving, unrelenting. And so must we be in return.
