Last Thursday, we took Gabby for her last visit here...

OPI is where Gabby receives her chemo treatments through IV or lumbar puncture. You can read about one of our visits HERE - A day in the life.

Thursday - 738 days after our first OPI visit - Gabby had her last trip to the Infusion Center.

The child life specialist helped her access a tiny elephant's port, and give him some chemo too, just to share the love.

And after her treatment was over, and she was recovered from the "silly medicine" (anesthesia), all of her nurses came in, sang her a "Happy last chemo to Gabby!" song, and presented her with a trophy.

She still has about a month of treatments at home, but it's one giant, giant step closer to over for her.
