This blog post is a blast of love.
Oscar had his check up and his bloods are good. Instead of Dr M today we got to see Oscar's actual Oncologist (Dr B), whom we haven't seen in some years. Dr B says Oscar is tracking well and that we don't need to come back for a check up for SIX months. This will be the longest time we have been away from the Oncology Clinic in 5 years and when Dr B says it to me I know its real. She is a no nonsense kind of woman who always told me straight, treated me with respect and had my back.
I love, love, LOVE this woman!
Seeing Dr B meant I also got the chance to tell her about Ann Louise who was a patient of Dr B's 20 years ago and who is related to my family. Ann Louise passed away suddenly, six days after giving birth to her second child. I didn't have the courage to say anything the last time I was at the clinic as it was still fresh information and I was unable to find the words.
Dr B can hold any space comfortably and be honest which is a beautiful gift when you are working in children's Oncology. She has been working at the hospital since before I was born and she has saved a lot of lives.
Then we dropped in on Ryan, a little boy 4 years of age who has just been diagnosed with Leukaemia (ALL). He is the younger brother of Oscar's soccer team mate and I only heard yesterday about his diagnosis. I figured he would be in the Camperdown Ward and we found him. I gave his mum several hugs. No words.
Compassion is an energy free of all self interest and drama.
Oscars' living example of good health five years down the track from where Ryan is today provides some positive vibes all of their own. We have nothing else to offer but our presence and our love.
Childhood cancer is extremely rare.
Take care beautiful people. Thanks for checking in on us. We are grateful to be where we are and we are also with you, wherever you are - because what happens to you, happens to me. We are one big energetic field.
Whatever you are here to do - do it NOW! Love Cindy xx
