You read the title correctly.
May 9th, 2018, after six and a half months, Isla got out of hospital.
I am going to be doing a blog post with a full story later, but I will say a little about her last day now. It was an amazing and emotional day. When Isla called me and told me her ANC was 600 in the morning, I cried, for the first of many times that day. We are so incredibly proud of her, and how she has overcome such adversity. Most kids ring a bell when they have completed their treatment, but just like in everything, Isla did things her own way. She didn’t want to ring the bell as she was probably feeling a bit overwhelmed with so many people around, and she is not a fan of loud noises, so she ran into the nurses station where she would go every day and ask who her nurse was, and she wiped her name off the white board.
In the evening we went to see Peppa Pig with another family from 6 Link, courtesy of a donation of tickets to the hospital, and the girls enjoyed the show. We got home and Isla was just so excited to be home, see Cinnamon, and all her stuff, it was adorable. The day ended with an incredible sunset, like icing on the cake of the best day of our lives.
Here are some photos of her last day as an inpatient at the IWK
