Back Home

Scott got back home this morning. His bloodwork came back fine. He's happy to be home, and had a better day on Sunday. He feels pretty good today.

Just on a daily dose of one drug - 6MP (6-Mercaptopurine) at the moment. That's the course for the next 11 days. He'll also be on the antibiotic on the weekends, as well as using a prescription mouthwash to help with some of the Methotrexate and 6MP side effects (basically those little white spots you get in your mouth).

I try to keep up with all the drugs he's given, but it isn't very easy. He's now been through Methotrexate, 6MP, Vincristine, Intrathecal (direct to spinal fluid) Vincristine, Allopurinol, Bactrim, Ativan, IV-pushed Benadryl, Doxorubicin and even a bit of Morphine the day his port was installed. That's just off the top of my head at the moment. It's no wonder he felt lousy this weekend.

Back to clinic on Thursday for a blood test. We're not sure if he'll have a spinal tap or bone marrow aspiration done then.

Good luck tomorrow, Scott!

We'll be thinking of you. That Superman logo you are wearing truly suits you.

Lots of love to you all.
