Day 65 Update - 16JAN09
This is Joshua pretending to be asleep...This is dad trying vainly to get him to open his eyes and take a picture. Dad lost.
All my knowledge of Joshua's day is second hand. I left for work before he got up and came home in time to put him to bed. Based on interviews with the other members of the house I came up with the following. Mom and Jarrod spent the day trying to get Jarrod's reading and language arts assignments completed, Joushua, according to himself, "Didn't help." Other than that I surmise he had a good day.
It is still our hope that while Joshua is not helping his brother with school work his bone marrow is busy churning out trillions of white blood cells so his ANC will be over 750 on Monday. He was more active today and this evening which usually is an indication that his counts are at least on the way up and not bottoming out.
Our turtle has apparently gone stark raving mad! For those of you who don't know, we have a large African Leopard Tortoise named Caesar living in our back yard.
He is a reptile, which is supposed to mean that his blood is cold, and when it is cold outside he sleeps. Sleeps deeply in his heated house where he can stay warm. Not our turtle... three times today, including at 10:oo tonight Renee found him out in the yard under a bush. It is 43 degrees outside and dropping! Yet this is when our insane hard shelled friend has decided to leave the comfort and warmth of his house to go wandering around in the yard.
