We also decided to get a jump on our holiday celebration by putting up the Christmas Tree and decorating the house for Christmas. The kids had fun. Jaxon is fascinated by the tree. I give it a week before he totally destroys everything.
Austin has felt pretty good. He has had some nausea and vomiting that comes and goes as well as some back pain that is a side effect of the Chemo. His labs today were great. ANC 1600, Platelets 430,000, Hematocrit 31. So off we went again to get more Chemo. Austin was happy to see Michael, the Child Life Specialist. Austin has been saving some jokes to tell Michael so he entertained us all by reciting the ones he knew and then Michael brought Austin a joke book to read and Austin got a kick out of that. We laughed and had a good time...oh yeah and had some more poison infused into Austin's veins.
|Having his Port accessed by the Home Health Nurse|
|Vitals taken, always love the blood pressure cuff!|
|Same as last time, but lost a little weight|
|Dr. Marsden gave Austin this mask to play with, he got a kick out of it and insisted on wearing it to the car.|
|Telling Michael jokes|
|Telling jokes. Austin's laugh is so contagious|
|Getting Chemo and telling jokes.|
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope each of us takes a moment to reflect on our blessings. Hug your little ones and tell them how much you love them! Never take for granted each day you have with them.
