Joel had a good week at home. He had several side effects from the last chemo but he healed up quickly and was able to get a bit of school work done and hang out with friends. His blood counts on Tuesday were all high enough so that he could start treatment again this week. Joel drove the whole way down from Armstrong to Vancouver through sun, sleet, snow and rain. He did very well except for once when I had to yell for him to "slam on the brakes, no really, you have to really slam on them hard". He did stop in time...... two inches to spare and he made the people in the car behind us laugh......
The Easter Bunny left a treat for Joel at Ronald MacDonald House
And there was blue nail polish for me, in honor of the Canucks.
This morning Joel went in for his LP (chemo in the spine). He always comes out of that one very happy and content and he doesn't remember anything about the following few hours after.
He is also very hungry cause he hasn't been allowed to eat since the evening before. I always take him to Whole Foods before going to the hospital so he can pick out something yummy to eat. He is always frustrated though cause he has no memory of what he ate.
He is way too easy to tease. This time I told him that I painted his toenails with the blue nail polish. It took him several hours before he was brave enough to check.
