It's not where you are it's who you're with. Day 73 24JAN09

We have never been all that normal, why would our anniversary be any different? We all gathered in Joshua's room for dinner, drinks, and companionship. It was a great dinner and the best part is we got to share it as a family.

 Josh is at least eating a little bit, Dr. O changed his meds and so far it seems to be working. His ANC actually slipped down a few points today but we are confident that it will begin rising soon. All of his other labs were normal or close to it. His attitude was much improved today and he had a great time playing with everybody.

I noticed yesterday that his eyebrows are almost gone... I am not sure when they slipped off his face but they did. If anyone finds them let me know.

In the next installment of kids never cease to amaze me when they are bored I offer the following:
This is what the "kids" were doing down in the play room while mom and dad we relaxing back in the room.
I am positive that they will be the terror of whatever nursing home they all wind up in;)

Wow, has it been 12 years that your Mom and Dad have been married? I remember when your Mom was thinking of having my daughter, Jessica, as a flower girl in the wedding. We were at Scott's wedding then. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it to their wedding.
Happy Anniversary!

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I am so happy you all got to spend Mom & Dad's anniversary together. A hospital room is better than no room.

You goofy guys in the wheelchairs crack me up? No wonder your Dad's getting grey hair!

I was talking to your Dad earlier and he said Jarrod spent the night with you in the hospital. Did you two stay up all night wispering?

Hope you get sprung from the hospital really, really soon and that you don't have to go back for a long time (except for Chemo). And I also hope the doctors can find a way to help you eat more so you can keep kickin that nasty old cancer butt right in the ..... well, you know where.

Stay strong little snuggle monkey - cousin Dylan will want you and Jarrod to come skiing before you know it.

Love, hugs and kisses,

Gramma Linda
