Want to see a trick? Day 92 12FEB09
I took Josh and Jarrod to the park this evening for a little while. This is how it went: Joshua would run up to a group of kids he knew; pull up his hat; say "I'm bald"; put his hat back on and see how they reacted; then he would move to a new group and repeat. I watched him do this until all the kids on the playground had seen his head and he could start playing. It was nice, although I was a little nervous, watching him play like he did before he got sick. He is more cautious than he was before when he would throw caution to the wind and climb on anything no matter how high. But for a little while this evening he was just the bald kid on the playground.
We finished this weeks round of chemo today and Josh got his port de-accessed. The new dressing seemed like a success, it was much easier to remove. He now has no needle pass until Monday when we start all over again.
