Day #7

Today was mostly a maintain day. He's still on several medicines and a fluid drip, but no chemo.

He took his first shower since being admitted (rather than a bath). He loves taking showers and I'm thankful that his central line doesn't keep him from being able to have them.

He was a little grumpier and more shy today. He didn't want to talk much to many of his visitors. His labs looked "good" today. Good is relative at this point, but they were good compared to what is expected. They are showing that the chemo is already doing it's job, which is very comforting. He also didn't get sick again today - such a blessing and relief. He didn't eat much, but he played and acted a lot like himself.

We got Skype set up and he was able to see his class. It was so cute to see their little faces all crowded around the computer. He didn't talk to them much because he was being really shy, but he did show them his central line. They had his monkey and made sure that he participated in everything they did.

We finally got him to go play in the playroom. Once he got there, he had a lot of fun. It's good to get him out of his room for a little while. He has started getting used to having his "tree" follow him around everywhere.

His grandma came to stay with him tonight so that Jon and I could have some time with our Bible study group in a separate room. It was good to get out and spend some time with them even though we were only a few rooms down. He was so tired that he fell asleep before 8:00.
