Yesterday was Michael's chemo treatment and everything went smoothly again. Dr. Kennedy said Michael's counts were down so she thinks he may be coming down with something. But so far, he has been healthy. We were happy to see one of Michael's regular nurses, Sharyle. Between her vacation, our going on Mondays for a while and the holidays, we hadn't seen her since November.
Michael had a great day today. He feels perfect and enjoyed his Valentine's Day party at school a whole bunch. Now he is giving Chance a physical. He has declared she needs Vitamin C for her bad leg and there is nothing he can do about her bad breath. Chance is just happy for the attention.
Michael has treatment on Thursday again next week and I am considering keeping his treatments on that day. He doesn't seem to be getting sick so Thursday treatments shouldn't interfere with school on Friday. And, Jeff & I met a little boy and his mother at clinic yesterday that I would like Michael to meet (he was busy sleeping). You see, Trevor is the same age as Michael, is on the the same chemo regimen, has an Astrocytoma brain tumor and a port and even has glasses like Michael. Michael has met other kids at treatment but Trevor is the first child Michael's age that has so much in common with Michael. I think it would be good for him to meet and spend some time with a little boy "like him" and Trevor gets treatments on Thursdays.
I will post if there is anything new. In the meantime, please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne.
