It hasn't been a very good weekend...

It's pretty hot today so Michael is laying quietly on the deck, enjoying the breeze and trying to stay cool.

Michael has been pretty sick this weekend from his chemo treatment on Friday. He hasn't kept anything down since Friday (including his Zofran) except a small bowl of fruit last night. I was supposed to go to Binghamton for one of Jenny's bridal showers yesterday but didn't because Michael was so sick. And today we were going to go to an air show with my Dad at the local army base but had to cancel because Michael wasn't up to it.

Michael is sick like he was when he first started treatments. His little body must have gotten used to the chemo medicines over the last 5 months. But with his 6 week hiatus while his counts were down, it must have gotten used to not having chemo. I hope his body adjusts again quickly. When we originally planned his Make-A-Wish trip, he was on his 2 week break and should have been feeling good. Now the trip is right in the middle of one of his 4 week treatments. The same is true of Jenny's wedding. He was supposed to be on break and now has to have chemo the day before the wedding. Keep your fingers crossed that he feels up to enjoying those 2 things this summer. JoAnne

I saw your comment on Picket's page and clicked because the pic of your son reminded me of a pic of my son that is on my blog page.

I would like to say that I understand what you are going through as my nephew who lived with me for two years was diagnosed with retinoblastoma. It caused an eye of his to be removed.

He is fine now and I believe miracles happen, so I will be praying for your sweet son, and I too hope he is able to enjoy his summer!!
