A few pics

I've put a few pictures of Scott with "Benji", one of the dogs that "work" for the hospital.

Yes, you read that correct - dogs at the hospital.

"Benji" is actually the third dog Scott has had visit since his first stay 3 weeks ago. We only have printed pictures of the other two, as we didn't really have carrying a camera to a hospital high on the priority list. The dogs are highly trained, and pretty much hams for the camera. The first two that visited just put their front legs up beside Scott, then proceeded to pose. Benji insisted on getting all the way up on the bed and sitting down with Scott.

They only visit for a few minutes with each kid, but it does wonders for their spirits and mood.

Scott had a bit of a rough day today. He got a pounding headache and just wanted the room dark and to sleep. He was given some drugs to help with both. One of those days where it is just hard to watch him have to deal with. His high-dose chemo is the culprit. The nurses do say it is rough for most kids on the first treatment. At least he has not been vomiting. It seems likely to be at least Monday at this point before he'll be let loose to come home.
