: Happy dance for you both that things are calming down, and no NF, and no leukemia!
What about a subscription to one of the kids' magazines? DD gets Highlights for Kids (the preschool version of Highlights) and enjoys it. It is full of different kinds of stories. Not sure how much it is b/c my mom ordered it, but probably around $2/month. We also read several books at the bookstore each time we go to buy one. Lots of adults just go in to read, I notice! Why not the kids?

It takes me several days for things to get back to "normal." I spend that time unpacking and cleaning up the house, making it "mine" again. It does take several days.
Giant hugs. We've been through a lot of med stuff at this point, but looking back, the seizures were the worst experience to date. I hope there will be quick, positive answers from the tests.
My daughter was a little older when she got hers... almost 4 years, but she loves it. She remembers the pokes before the port, and having the port is sooo much easier. She calls it her "button" and we talk all the time about how much we love it.
