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.

You are such a goof ball. =) I bet all of your friends were a little freaked out that their friend Joshua had no hair but they all got use to it really fast because they know what a fun person you are and you having no hair was no problem!!=)

Hey Snaggle Snuggle Monkey,

I Love the Hat Trick!!!! Way cool. I am glad you got to go back to the park and have some more outdoor fun.

I am elated that you are needle free until Monday and that the new sticky stuff is easier on you. It pays to have good friends all over the place.

Hope today is another stellar day for you and that you get to back to the park and play your hat trick again. You truly are goofy and so much fun.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
