morning, noon, and afternoon
This is how the morning started. They were so peaceful and playing side by side. Usually they have trouble getting along for very long, so this was sweet and most welcome. I'm hoping we're going to go into a new phase of them enjoying each other and not fighting.
It was Rainer's clinic day (labs only, this time, no chemo because that is done for good!) and they had a little party for him with cake and pizza. A local hotel donates these cakes to the clinic when the kids are done with chemo.
And after clinic we took the kids to the zoo. Here is Rainer on the ant hill, sliding down on a piece of cardboard. This is maybe my boys' favorite part of the zoo. I couldn't help think, watching him play and slide, about how amazing and wonderful it is to have him here, healthy and intact, playing like any other kid, and done with meds and procedures. I'm so happy and grateful for that.
