Sorry for the delay in messages here. It's been a busy week so far. Derry is off on a field trip to the Space Center today. I had to travel yesterday. Stephanie had been busy getting things ready for Derry's trip and Scott's hospital stay.
Luckily Scott hasn't gotten sick in several days. Knock on wood. Maybe he finally recovered from the last methotrexate dosage - just in time to check in today for the next in-patient round.
No results from bone marrow or spinal tap work yet, but they've been done and he's checked back into room 237 at the hospital now. Right now he's just getting hydrated via his port, preparing for the high-dosage to start (likely around midnight tonight). He woke up asking for pizza, so that's a good sign. He didn't eat too much, but did have a bit.
He's still on-guard for his leg shots. So all his nervousness isn't gone just yet. Hopefully he can handle those as well as Stephanie said he did last week. I sure hope so. I don't know how a kid is expected to face that each week for 5 months.
I'll post more this evening when he's done with all the poking and proding for the day.
