Last Spinal Tap and Strong Chemo

On Feb 5th, Joey had another spinal tap and Vincristine dose (strong chemo through his port).  I think it was the 15th spinal, but, most importantly, it was his last!  I kept reminding him of how awesome that was, but he didn't seem to understand the importance of it.  It was a huge milestone in his treatment.  

It also happened to be the 100th day of school, so his class dressed up like they were 100 years old :)

He really didn't feel well after the treatment and he had a rough week after that.  He had a lot of bone pains and his back hurt for several days.  Luckily, he was out of school so he could rest.  He slept several extra hours each day.  I know he doesn't feel well when he crawls into bed on his own in the middle of the afternoon.
