My advice to anyone going through a major life crisis: Have a baby. Preferably a three-and-a-half-month-old baby because he will be smiley and happy and look as if you just made his day every time you walk into the room, but yet he can’t move yet and you don’t have to chase him around like [...]
We’re out! We got out yesterday and Sammy is at school today. Neil leaves tonight for New York. I’ll do a full update later this week. Just wanted to let everyone know we are out of the hospital.
Happy Day After Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. We started out going to the park to play a big game of kickball with the Bonebrakes and several other wonderful families (most of whom we met yesterday). The boys had a ball. Sammy played kickball the whole time. He ran the bases and everything. [...]
It’s funny how this rollercoaster goes. I was going to post an update on Monday that basically said that for the first time in many months Neil and I were able to pick our heads up and look around at things. We were actually talking about things in our lives a few years into the [...]
Hurray! We are officially happy! Dr. Willert called Neil this morning with the official report and we were right. There is nothing new, the spot on the hip is gone and the spot on the femur only has faint uptake! We’ve got the b*7^5rd on the run. Now we need to figure out a plan [...]
So, the scan looked good we think. The official report is not done yet but Neil and I only saw the spot on the femur and it was very faint. It’s hard to tell what the contrast is on the screen but it looked better to us. We didn’t see anything at all near the [...]
Sammy needed platelets yesterday so we were in the hospital until about 1:30 and missed another day of school. Argh. I read SuperFudge to him before he fell asleep from the Benadryll pre-med and we laughed out loud together. I forgot how funny Judy Blume books are. Sam is now completely tanked up with new [...]
Out Out Damn Spot!
I’m picking Sammy up from school in about twenty minutes to go and get his injection for his MIBG scan tomorrow. I’ve already got that frantic nervous energy that I always get before scans. Everytime we have a scan and I’m watching it come up on the monitor and I see a [...]
It was looking grim early yesterday morning but Dr. Willert, our hero, discharged us yesterday for Halloween and the kids had a ball. We made it back from the hospital in time for me to take Andy to his preschool Halloween parade – what a hilarity! I didn’t bring Sammy to that because I wanted [...]
