I know we have this page to keep up with the medical aspects of Scott, and I happily report the steroids are in full swing to the tune of about 10 croissants, two bowl of strawberries and two large fries from Steak n Shake. Scott now passed out on couch with a huge belly, like a good man should be.
But today's good news is on the Derry front. We just got word this evening he's been slotted on a hockey team for the Fall Rec league!! It was great timing, as all he had done today since getting home was slave away on a mountain of homework. He was quite moody, even with getting a trip to Steak n Shake (which he loves). I got the email right as we got home. He'll have practices on Friday evenings, and games on either Saturday or Sunday mornings.
We're very happy for Derry, as he needs something that is "his". He's lost a lot of personal time since Scott was diagnosed, which is just the nature of the beast. This will be a great thing for him, and it has no involvement on school/work nights. One of his friend's, DJ, was slotted on the same team as well. He was very happy about that, and DJ called shortly afterward so they could talk. Derry seemed shocked when Stephanie said the phone was for him. LOL.
Cheers for Derry!
(and for me, as I know officially have a boy playing sports!)
