Joey is officially in the maintenance phase of his treatments.  This is the final phase and will last about 14 months. Overall, he'll be getting less chemo, although it may not seem like it, since he'll get a leg shot every week.

He had his first shot today and he did really well with it.  It helps that we used the magic cream to numb it.  He still felt some of it, but he was ok.  His leg hurt for a little while afterwards and limped a little bit back to the car.  It was a little more of a stick then I was expecting.  It's more than an immunization type of shot.  It left a bigger hole and bled more than I was expecting, but I'm sure we'll get used to them soon enough.
