Day 10 22NOV08 Going Home!

Josh is doing good today, he had another round of chemotherapy before lunch and did well. The Doctors said we could take him home for a while and at 1:30 pm we did just that. It was great to finally leave the hospital and it is the first time Joshua has been in the sun since he went into the hospital. He slept most of the way home (the chemo makes him really tired). We are thrilled and scared at the same time, thrilled that he is with us at home again, scared because we do not want him to get sick and have to go back to the hospital. Lee went to the grocery store and stocked up on hand sanitizer (inside stock tip... buy shares now...) I think he will be buying a lot more. Josh has spent the evening resting, playing his new Life game with his brother and he even got a home cooked meal and a bath! The rest of us are pretty worn out, it has been a long 10 days. Hopefully we can all get a good nights rest and feel fresher tomorrow. Brandon (Josh's older brother) had to leave tonight to go back to work in Augusta Georgia where he is a police officer. Josh really enjoyed seeing him and we will all miss him.
