Andrew had Leukaemia and finished treatment on 2oth February 2016.

Today is the 20th May 2016. It has been 3 months today since Andrew's last chemo.

 For the past three months I have not have to:

put up with 3 steroid weeks
Clean up sick
Complete a sticker book
Play on the wii u
Listen to Andrew complain that his legs ache
Be woken up at silly a clock regularly
Take Andrew's temperature
Count to 10 and walk away
Sleep on Andrew's bedroom floor
Accompany Andrew for a General Anaesthetic
Go to work on 4 hours sleep
Count up beads/Thread on beads
Force Andrew to go to school
Cook an unappreciated meal
Waste food
Deal with a tantrum
Wake Andrew in the middle of his night for chemo
Cancel a meeting due to a hospital stay

Today is one day further away from the sadness and trauma we lived through.

Life is good.
