Day 40 Update - 22DEC08
Joshua had a busy day today. We were at the hospital at 9:00 am to get started. Josh did labs then got a spinal tap and got his PICC line removed. He is really glad to get rid of the tube in his arm, he saved it in case anybody wants to see it :)
He will stay in the hospital tonight while he gets his chemo therapy and hopefully will be back home tomorrow sometime. We are beginning the second phase of his treatment, this phase will last 57 days. Joshua continues to be very brave. When the nurses ask if is allergic to anything he immediately chimes up with, "Leukemia! (pause...) and fire ants...". It is really cute the way he says it.
