Uggg this off-treatment lark is a bitch to be sure.
Scott finally stopped spouting bodily fluids about 10 days ago. David and I breathed a big sigh of relief and Scott unclenched.
Last Thursday he had his first official O/T check up with, spookily enough, the doctor who originally diagnosed him. As he had been in the previous week and his blood looked good the doc didn’t order more tests, he just physically checked Scott over and sent him on his way.
So all seemed well and groovy until Scott started throwing up again on Saturday morning. He’s also riddled with bruises which are THE red flag to a leukemia patient (indicating platelets being crowded out by cancerous cells) BUT he had been wrestling with his brother on one of his better days. Each bruise has now been counted and catalogued – any more show up and hey ho hey ho its off to clinic we go. Sunday and Monday he was also sick, tired and miserable but today no puke and a wee bitty more of an appetite.
I thought the end of treatment would be a cakewalk, its not, its hell.
Finally, in case you didn’t see this today, here is Ida
isn’t she a beaut!!
More beautifulness, Springsteen and aqualungmyfriend ...
