Ringing the Bell

Monday was Phenon’s last day of treatment at the fabulous University of Maryland Medical Center.  Rowan and I joined Julie for the special event and loved meeting all the amazing people who have been taking care of our girl for the past three weeks.

On the last day of treatment they call a “Pediatric Code Sunshine” over the PA system and doctors, nurses, and techs who are available come out to the radiation waiting area where the newly former patient rings a bell signifying the end of treatment.  I wish my phone could manage to get the sound and video a bit more in sync, but fortunately I’m swinging the damn thing around so much that mostly you can’t tell who’s saying what, when, anyhow:

Then there were hugs all around and that was that: Treatment is done.
