Home again... Day 131 23MAR09

Joshua is home!

After a rather long and arduous day Joshua managed to get out of the hospital and return home. His day really started at midnight last night when he went NPO. He was very hungry (yeah!!) by the time he got done with the bone marrow biopsy at 2:00. He got something to eat and we restarted chemo again this afternoon. He got the IV methotrexate and Vincristine he was originally scheduled to get this past friday. Hopefully this will not throw his roadmap schedule all out of whack. His counts have stayed up and look good right now.

Jarrod and I spent the morning hanging out with a bunch of dead people. We went, along with Grandpa Gandy and Christian, to the Bodies World exhibit at MOSI. It was fabulous. What an amazing creation the human body is. Jarrod also got to see his first IMAX film in the dome. He thought it was really cool. It was a wonderful day and we enjoyed being together on our "guys" field trip.

Joshua has spent most of the evening sleeping. The days events definitely took their toll on his little body. A good nights rest at home should do wonders for him and we hope he is feeling much stronger tomorrow.

So we are a whole again.


Gypsy wagons carefully parked in the side yard in preparation for the next journey.

Suitcase on standby near the front door.

But for now, we are home.
