Joey did really well during at his appointment yesterday.  Jon came because I wasn't sure that I could hold him during the spinal tap.  He asked if there were going to be any pokes.  We couldn't lie and told him there would be just one, which made him scared.  He cried for a little while, but stayed laying still.  Once he got the local block, he was fine.  He was hungry all day so I got him some ice cream after we left. 

The doctor said he is ok to have a birthday party as long as it's small and he doesn't get too rowdy.  We decided to have a small group of friends over for a costume party.  We've been planning for him to be Davey Crocket for Halloween, but in the last week or so, he keeps saything that he wants him and his friend Jackson to be Mario and Luigi.  He kept asking so I caved and bought him a Mario costume - it's pretty cute.  Jackson is going to get Luigi - Joey's super excited.  

Last night, we had some friends over to watch the K-State game.  Joey was so tired that he didn't get up to play with the other kids.  He sat next to Jon most of the night and grazed on snacks for about 2 hours until his tummy hurt. 

He ran just a low-grade fever today for the first time and said his tummy hurt, while he was at Tree House.  They asked him what he wanted and he said he just wanted to go home.  His Grandma was on her way home, so she stopped to pick him up and brought him home.  His temp when down really fast and his tummy felt better, but he didn't really eat anything after breakfast this morning, when he ate 4 cinnamon rolls. Tonight he's staying with Grandma and Grandpa. We're planning to venture out to a birthday party and the Leukemia walk tomorrow night as long as he feels well enough.
