Hopefully all these increases will not make for even worse pains and side effects over the coming week. I hate vincistine day and the start of steroids but know I would be a basket case if he wasnt getting his medication.
He has just taken his first dose of steroids and is already harassing me to call Pizza Hut. There is no way they have 'kicked in' yet, I understand the cravings oh too well but I think there is also a very obvious psychological element too. Now and then people ask me 'what can I do for Scott', well a Pizza Hut gift card would be very welcome as this whole cancer thing is proving to be a 'rather extravagant' experience!!
Well that is is for now, please think of David and I (LOL) as we deal with our steroid monster over the coming week. I think after caring for a child taking 165mg of prednisone a day, the teenage years will be a walk in a beautiful, flowery park.
Also please keep little Mathew in your thoughts. A lot of hearts are breaking at what this sweet child and his family are going through. Our friend Pat Pedraja is dedicating next years 'Driving for Donors' in Mathew's honor. Im so proud of Pat for his hard work and compassion and whilst I am horrified at what Mathew has had to endure I am also in awe of him for being so very brave. I'm just believing and clinging to the hope that Mathew will somehow and someway beat this crap.
