Joey made it through 4 straight weeks of chemo with no severe side effects.  He has gotten tired and had some muscle weakness but has managed ok.  His counts have been low and his immune system is extremely low, so it's surprising that he hasn't gotten sick.  We're SO fortunate that he has had no infections.  

We attended a Thunder hockey game that honored cancer patients.  We went on the ice in a survivor circle and Joey and 2 of his friends (who also have leukemia) got to meet the team.  He wore orange for leukemia.  

Katherine had her school music program last week.  It was Disney-themed, so they all dressed like Disney characters.  Katherine was Gabriella from HSM. 

For our peer support group this month, the kids got to paint.  Their paintings will be used to create a book and the originals will be auctioned to raise money for the Leukemia Society via a Man of the Year candidate.  Katherine got to paint too, but she got to bring her painting home.
