Okay to go.

Scott was okayed to go ahead and start his next 3-week cycle. Kind of "good news/bad news". Good because we don't want delays, as delays can cause complications. Bad news because, well - he had doxorubicin, vincristine and his last rounds of leg shots today (HOORAY!!). But for 5 days he has 10 steroid pills per day. And still the 3200 mg of antibiotic everyday. Then Bactrim twice a day on FR-SA-SU. And 6mp each night.

It is likely going to be a bad weekend. He already feels horrible and has a sore stomach. But we have to try and get everything in him, somehow. Someway.

Derry had his second session with power skating tonight. He's exhausted and everything hurts. He's likely sweated more in the last 3 days than he has in a year. But it is good for him, and even though he says it isn't "fun", I think he will enjoy it all once his body is in tune.

derry - this is for you - well done for doing the ice hockey even if everything does hurt - you'll be able to look back and say it was brilliant - I hope!! Keep at it. Glad Scott's last leg shots are done - it's hard when the nurses sit and wait for his permission to do it when he knows it's going to hurt. It was good to be with you all in spite of the circumstances. keep your spirits up.
love to you all
