Next Wednesday is another milestone point for Talitha.
Besides looking for an uptick in her white blood cell count, she will be sedated for another spinal tap and hearing test. Then, while she is still asleep, they will remove the central line from her chest.
I don't feel the same anxiousness about this upcoming spinal tap. But I will continue to pray that she remains cancer free.
It will be strange at first not having the daily maintenance to perform on the central line. It won't be so easy to have blood tests done but the extra risks of having a portal opening right to the heart will be eliminated.
One step closer to Tali re-entering society.
