Here is Scott and his friend, Neffy, playing on the N64 at clinic. Neffy has been through all this once already but sadly relapsed a few months ago.
As you can see Scott's hair is coming back in again now. This is quite usual in children with leukemia, whilst he is still being given chemotherapy on an almost daily basis, the very high doses are now behind him and for most kids the hair will start to come back. However, at any time during his 15/16 months of treatment still ahead it could all just drop out again. Whilst it is wonderful to see hair again and a little pinkness in his cheeks I am more than a little sad that the new growth is dark and not the mousy blonde he used to be (but fear not, I am a dab-hand with a bottle of hydrogen-peroxide!). A change in colour is normal and as it grows we may even see curls!!!!Ug.
Till next time.
