9:54 PM (TX time) Sophie had a follow-up appointment with the Oncologist in Lubbock today and that went well. Everything continues to look good as far as her blood counts go. Her reflexes have still not returned (the old hammer on the knee test), but that is the result of all the vincristine Sophie took in treatment. Her range of motion in her feet is fine, though, so we'll continue to expect improvement in her reflexes (they're actually better now than they were).

The most hopeful news was that our oncologist says that she has not seen a relapse after 20 months post-treatment, which is exactly where we are. Of course, Lubbock is not Chapel Hill as far as the volume of kids that are seen, but it was yet another small and encouraging milestone in this journey.
