2nd round at hospital

We are here on our second round of this mix of therapy. We will have these three chemo drugs for 5 days then go home. We had a good visit from the onc doc today. It seems like B is doing very well with this chemo. I hate giving him chemo, but there is no choice. This 'batch' has been better on him than any he has had before. We are on this. GOD has this one.
The doc on call just happened to be the one in charge of the transplants, so that was nice and I was able to ask some questions regarding the transplant. Actually, it didn't just happen, I prayed about it. I love it when that happens. We will have a big meeting prior to BMT also, so we will know all about it. They were going to go straight to transplant but this doc was talking about a possibility of maybe doing one more round if he keeps doing this well to get him in a deeper remission. Deeper remission means there will be more cancer cells destroyed, the ones you can't see, so hopefully more chance of the BMT succeeding. I know there will be some amazing results as B goes through this.
I know some mom's up here. So many sad stories. So many good stories. So many relapses. So many new diagnoses! 1 child in 320 will be diagnoses with cancer EACH DAY! No one is immune. Children are not the same as adults. They don't get cancer because they ate too much junk their whole life etc...yes all that helps keep it away and helps everyone's life in general, but I truly believe that there is something big that happens that causes cancer in them, like a mix of the right conditions such as virus, molds, parasites, food intake and pesticides all in different scenarios depending on the kid, the location, the cancer etc...
I can't and don't try to figure it out, it is too big for my brain, especially now. Ugh. But God is good and supplies all our needs and is always giving peace and comfort.
Believing for healing,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
