Having fun so far. But I’m not inpatient yet. I sprayed Dr Schwartz and Dr Bishop with silly string when we met for my clinic visit today. They screamed really loud!!!! Super funny! I got my pillow removed so my arm is now down at my side! What a relief (actually it sort of feels strange)
We found some cool toys in our apartment that St Jude dropped off for Christmas.
We were pretty sad to leave home yesterday and postponed it as late as possible. Brianna started feeling a scratchy throat so we felt it was best to give the kids a few days to recover before they come up to Memphis. Scott and I arrived in Memphis around 10 pm. We began appointments at St Jude this morning around 8:30. Blood draw and accessing his port for Chemo tonight, Mail room visit to get some fun packages, and many Christmas cards (thanks for making his day). Psychology visit, clinic visit to review his labs and be sure he is strong enough to go in for Chemo tonight. Scott obviously made that appointment exciting for all of us. Some silly string arrived in one of the fun packages today. Scott new immediately what it was going to be used for and could hardly wait for his appointment to put it to work. The Doctors were good sports about being squirted. They said silly string is much better than spit up and other things they get squirted with. But they did look a bit surprised and squealed a little, which made it even more fun for Scott!!! Then off to the best thing of the day, OT or Occupational Therapy to remove Scott’s pillow and do a few exercises. Scott is really enjoying the privilege of operating 2 useful hands and arms. There will be a lot of work to rebuild the muscles. But he is really moving along nicely.
A very Happy 2015 to you all.
Thanks for the many prayers, cards, packages and support. You lives and days are blessed by you.
