Vincristine Blues... Day 104 24FEB09

Joshua is singin' the Vincristine Blues today. He had a rough day starting this morning with no energy and a pain in his neck. He spent most of the morning curled up in our bed with a heating pad. By this afternoon he seemed to be feeling better and had some of his energy back.

We have another milestone to reach in our journey. Next Tuesday Joshua has to qualify again with an ANC of 750 and platelets of 75 to begin the next phase of his treatment. We go back on Thursday for labs so we will have an idea of how he is doing so far. His platelets were real good on Monday. Hopefully they stay up.

The Tooth fairy did come last night and traded Joshua's tooth out for cold hard cash money. He was happy:)

Hey Snaggle Snuggle Monkey,

Singin the Vincristine Blues huh? That's deinitely not a good song. Hope you forget it real soon.

This cancer gig you're having to play is a real bummer and you are such an awesome warrior to stay so strong. Keep fighting little man because you are not only a warrior; you are a winner!

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
