Packy is home!

Today was it...the last day of chemo...hopefully forever.  Aside from picking at the sore on his head and a hurting super small tushy, the little dude is doing great and is very happy to be home.

So now what?  We will wait for a month or so for his counts to recover.  At that time, he will have a bone marrow/spinal tap/etc to scan his cells for any trace of leukemia.  He will be on an anti-biotic and anti-fungal medication for the next 6 months or so while his immune system gets back on track.
