It's not easy being green

Another steroid course starts tomorrow.

Oh wait. No it doesn't!  Because there are no more steroids!  And no more chemo!

Treatment officially ended July 14 and we celebrated this past weekend with a small gathering for close family and friends. 

We forgot to tell people not to bring gifts so Ari and Alison both received a few awesome new things.  They now have cool legos and books and bubbles and toys and...

Frogs.  2 of them. 

(I'm toad-ally not joking.  This is a perfect way to toad-st the end of treatment.  Because after caring for a kid with cancer for 2 years, everyone wants to care for 2 baby frogs.)

Let me introduce you to Kermit and Hermit. 

The little guys sleep all day and party all night.  (Sorta like a newborn baby...remind me never to do that again.)  They eat crickets, they take baths, and they like a daily shvitz in their sauna.  And their scent...well, let's just say, it makes me want to croak.

Frog's legs recipes anyone?

I'm kidding.  These guys are pretty fly.  But I gotta get going...breakfast today at Ihop.

I write this post on the thirteenth of July, 2014.  It is the evening before a very big day.

Tomorrow will be extraordinarily exciting.

I've been looking forward to the events of July 13, 2014 for such a very long time.

It will be a special day for a special person and their family.

I'll watch the events with bated breath.

And I'll toast immediately following the conclusion.

I'll shed both happy and sad tears. 

And I'll say a most heartfelt prayer for the future.

I don't know what will happen after tomorrow.  The internet doesn't even know for sure. 

Part of me doesn't want the day to come.  The other part of me has been waiting for way too long.

Will it end well?

Only time will tell.

July 13, 2014.

It's Bachelorette Andi Dorfman's overnight dates!! 

Obviously I'll be watching this episode seven hours after Ari receives his final dose of chemotherapy...but let's not jinx anything...
