He is offically in remission and his bone marrow transplant took. While this is adult children of survivors, I am only 17. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma when I was 15 and had to become a caretaker. I'm so happy he's in remission. He'll be able to go to my high school graduation next year. He'll be able to send me off to college. I am also happy for selfish reasons. SInce he's been feeling better it is as though I have my childhood back. I don't have to worry about how I'll pay for college, or my health insurance if something happened to him, or how food and shelter will be provided. I'm so relieved. It'll still be a long way until he's 100% healthy, but this is good enough for now.
