Cohen is finished with the study drug

(I started writing this post but never finished it... So here it is almost 4 weeks later. It's still not finished but I decided to post it anyways.)
Cohen finished his last treatment of the study drug on November 14th. I'm so relieved that he is finally done! He is done! Wow that is so weird to say but I'm so glad to be saying it. He has come such a long way in a year and a month. I'm still just so baffled to how far he has come. Just a year ago we were told that Cohen had a cancerous tumor the size of 2 grapefruits. That he was in stage 3 which is high risk (stage 4 is the highest.) That only 30% of kids with neuroblastoma stage 3 survive. To be in that 30% he has to be in remission for 5 years. I'm just so thankful that he's been in remission for 4 months! Now we just play the waiting game. He will have his next scan in the first of January and then every 3 months after that.
Thank you so much for your support, thoughts, and prayers!!!
