One year later… keeping a promise
By Just a mom's take on things... on April 16, 2014
April 17, 2013 will always remain one of the scariest days of my life. Waiting while my (then) 10-year-old daughter was wheeled back for a surgery that was going to remove most of her right knee tissue, move muscles around in her leg and then cover everything up with a graft of skin taken from her thigh… Not knowing for sure if this entire procedure was going to completely eradicate every last microscopic tumor cell… Wondering how difficult the recovery would be and how long it would be before we would see our active, athletic daughter up and running around again… I am so glad to have those days of uncertainty and stress behind us! April 17th was the beginning of several months of recovery, rehab and therapy for Hannah, but she bounced back so much faster than we ever expected and now – one year later – you’d never even know what she went through without looking at the physical scars that are still visible but fading more every day. . . .
