Friday was Matilda’s birthday, and the gift she got was that she is in remission! She still continues with the chemotherapy protocol, but her prognosis looks pretty good. She received a mani and pedi from one of her best (human) friends, and a visit from her auntie. She already has everything else. She is eating well! The recipe for her meals has come together. Today she ate from her bowl without my hand-feeding her! For me, this is a glimmer of magic.
