Ringing in 2013 with a little Peg

Peg, or Pegaspargase is a Chemo drug that can cause severe allergic reactions and therefore has to be monitored closely.  For this reason we had to head back to Primary's on New Years Eve.  It was a very cold and snowy day in Salt Lake and we were not thrilled to be going back.

Not excited to be getting his blood pressure taken

Getting Peg--no allergic reaction, wahoo!

Getting hooked up for chemo
It took about 3 hours to check in, get Austin's port accessed and infuse the Peg.  Austin made the time pass playing a game on the Xbox.  Thankfully, no allergic reaction or other problems so we made our way back to Grandma's.  We spent New Years Eve with family and had a great time.  Austin didn't feel great and went to bed early.  Only Madison made it to see the ball drop to ring in the new year.  Happy 2013!!!  We are hopeful that it's going to be a great year.
