Just got some good news from Stephanie and Scott at the clinic - the docs have put a stop to the Lovenox shots! Hopefully in a week or so Scott's stomach will be rid of the heroin-addict look! Scott immediately chased down Doc Rossbach and inquired as to when he was allowed to rollerblade, and was told "24 hours after the last injection".
This is probably one of the most relieving bits of news I know I've gotten. Scott has to be ecstatic. Jabbing him every day was getting to be horrible.
Other than that, there is a bit of a hiccup this morning and Scott's blood was "lost" between clinic and lab. Another sample taken and hand delivered to the lab. Scott is reportedly in a very good mood still.
That's a good thing, as we are off to Brad Richard's suite tonight for the Tampa Bay Lightning's regular season opener (be cursed you New Jersey Devils!). This time courtesy of the Children's Cancer Center, and of course Brad himself and Kacey. For those who don't know or remember, Brad lost a childhood friend to cancer when they were in their teens. Brad worked hard and is fortunate to be a top player in the NHL, and he gives generously to a cause he is truly committed to and understands. He won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2004, given to the Most Valuable Player in the NHL postseason. If there were a Conn Smythe for brightening the day of pediatric cancer kids in the Tampa Bay area, I'm sure Brad would get Scott's vote. The boy's love hockey. We love hockey. Scott's hockey playing has been postponed due to this disease, but he'll be back at it one day.
Even his blog is Lightning colors now that I think about it. Dunno if that was subliminal or intentional when Stephanie put them together.
