End of Treatment!!

January 26 2009, Amaey is finally done with his treatment for ALL
!! Arjun did not go to school, Apurva and I took the day off and the 4 of us went to the hospital for Amaey's last treatment. We took pictures of everything Amaey did... I wanted to document it all.
Later we went to the Sharma house to celebrate with Izzy and then to Sino for a celebratory dinner. Finally around 9pm I took Amaey to the Moussa residence. From there I took Gabriel and Amaey for ice-cream. This was a plan concocted by Amaey. The last day of treatment was carefully choreographed by Amaey  and we had to make sure we did everything. Frankly, we would do anything to make this all happen. This was a special day for Amaey and he deserved to get what he wanted.

Last Chemo

Jan 20 was a historic day in the life of America. We swore in the first African American President. 

Jan 20 was also a historic day in the Shah household, it was Amaey's last chemo day. We are getting there for sure. 1 more week and on Jan 26 after his procedure they will stop all his meds.

On another note, today Kids and Art got nominated, along with several other individuals, to participate in the Man and Women of the Year campaign organized by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Happy New year!

Might sound music to your ears but it is true. we are finally in the home stretch.

Amaey's 3.5 year treatment will be over soon.

Here is to Hope, Good Health and New Beginnings. May this year bring the needed stability.

These are my words for whoever is up there with a strange sense of humor-- Don't look at me, don't stop by to check on me. You can simply bypass me and I'm sure we will be fine. I don't want a wow, a bang, a breakthrough. I just want to be me. I just want to enjoy my kids as normal healthy kids. I just want to be normal and finally rest my guards.

Have a wonderful 2009!!
