Scotts labs all looked good this morning and he was able to get his weekly IV methotrexate. I get so anxious, we all do, that hour or so waiting for those blood tests to come back is always a worrying time. Anyway today all was well with an anc of 1500, great considering he is at his nadir. Next week is the start of another round with vincristine, methotrexate and more of those horrible steroids, he will also have another pentadamine breathing treatment.
I also tracked down our social worker to ask her about a trip Scott missed out on last year and which he is desperate to attend this year. It is run by a group called Sunshine Kids. Last year they went skiing to Steamboat Springs in Colorado, the year before was Hawaii. It is for the children only, no parents allowed, and Scott is really keen to get away from us and all our nagging for a week and just have some FUN!! I was told that as Scott was promised last year and couldnt go that he was definately in line for being chosen this year, as long as he is well enough. I was also told about two other fun camps. Boggy Creek in Florida, again for the patient only and Sunshine Camp in MAINE!!!!!!! Maine! Wow! I've always wanted to go to Maine and this camp (hurray) is for the whole family and looks fantastic. They even have a marina named after Stephen King!!
"Late last night and the night before,
Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers, knocking at the door.
I want to go out, don't know if I can,
'Cause I'm so afraid of the Tommyknocker man."
Well thats it for now.
Over and out.
