Final LP and Bone Marrow Day!

Callum had his final lumbar puncture and bone marrow aspiration today, which make a total of 18 LPs and 3 bone marrows in our little guy's life!!  EIGHTEEN!!  Can you believe it?!? 😱

Both Jon and Logan took the day off to hang out with Mr. Callum.  It was nice to have the whole family together for such a big event.  I was actually more nervous than I've been in the past, so felt quite relieved when he was done and back in post-op, resting up.

His oncology team was so sweet, and surprised him with a cake and balloons after he woke up, complete with song and cheers too!  🎉🎉💞👊🏼

They presented him with a Certificate of Completion, too! :)

He's been doing more of these sad faces lately - I think he's a little bummed about ending his treatment!

Our oncologist took a peek at his bone marrow and spinal fluid slides, before they sent them off to a special lab in the Northwest.  He says everything looks normal (which is good!).... we'll hear the "official" results in a few days, once they get word back from the lab.
