all clear

Lucas's trip with his daddy to CHOP today was welcomingly uneventful. There's no sign of fluid in his left ear, and no indication that his branchial cleft cyst has returned. Dr. K. would like to see him back in a year, unless we have concerns. We are beyond thankful for this news, and that we are able to avoid surgery for our little Lucas.

                                             Good night, little Lucas!
                                             Thank the Lord you are well!
                                             And now go to sleep!
                                             said Mommy Campbell.

And I turned out the light -
     and closed the door -
            and that's all there is -
                       there isn't any more.
