No trip to Syracuse this week...

Dr. Kennedy called today to check on Michael. I told her he still has a little cough but has been fever free. She said that since he seems to be doing fine, there is no reason to make the long trip to Syracuse in the morning. She didn't want him to miss any school his first week back.

We also talked about Michael's mouth sensitivity. She doesn't think that problem is from the chemo but possibly a mouth virus that doesn't cause noticeable sores. She said that is quite common in the summer. Perhaps that is what was ailing him last week. We'll just have to watch him. He actually ate even better tonight than he did last night.

Michael had another great day at school. He told me his favorite part of the day is gym because they "get to run around and have fun."

Next Friday is our trip to Erie, PA to meet Darby from My Friends Tigger and Pooh. Our local Make-A-Wish chapter made arrangements for Michael to meet Darby about a half hour before the show. They also reserved a hotel room for us, paid for the tickets for the show and set us gas cards for our trip. After all they have already done for us, this is wonderful. I can't wait to share all of the details with you.

Please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne.

I'm so excited that Michael is getting to meet Darby after not seeing her at Disney. I hope you take lots of pictures! Deb
