Hard Treatment Week

Joey had his hard week, this week.  Since Katherine is out of school, she wanted to go with us and watch his spinal tap (we've never taken her for that before). 

He also had his port accessed for and was given Vincristine.  (Nurse) Kim let Katherine draw his blood from his port and do all of the pushes.  So, Katherine actually gave Joey his chemo this time.  How many 9-yr-olds can say that??

Busy Spring

Katherine got a small acting part in her school music program.  She got to slam the clipboard down on the floor in anger - she really got into it. 

Joey had 2 golf tournaments as part of the Man/Woman of the Year, so his grandpa bought him is own clubs.  As it turns out, he loves golf.  He spent some time practicing at the range. 
 Katherine liked it too, although she had to use his right-handed clubs.

I got to go to field day at school.  Joey won his sack race - it was pretty funny.

 Katherine ran the 200M dash

Katherine did great at her piano recital again this year. 

We had an amazing night at the Grand Finale for the Man/Woman of the Year. To see all the pictures, go to Joey's Facebook page here:
We're a little sad that it's over, but I'm not sure how long we could have kept up that pace.  The candidates raised over $240,000 for LLS in just 10 weeks.  We were very privileged to be a part of it all.
