Not a happy camper... Day 130 22MAR09
Joshua is not a happy camper.
He is tired of being stuck in the hospital.
Tired of not feeling good.
Tired of running a fever.
He is just plain tired.
When Joshua gets tired, he gets crabby.
Today his temperature has stayed low. His ANC is at 762. It is an improvement and may mean that whatever has been afflicting him has left for other pastures. If we only knew what "it" was. We are scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy tomorrow morning. Not sure how long it will take to get the results back from pathology but we are hoping we will know something late tomorrow. There is a possibility that Josh will be able to come home after the procedure.
He would really like that.
We would really like that too.
I took him more food and some DVD's he requested this evening. The not eating thing seems to be just a memory. Which is a great thing. We can keep fattening him up when we get him back home. Father John from Saint Ann's came by this evening to visit Josh. They had a nice time except Josh kept falling asleep. Jarrod had a fun weekend. He spent the night at his friends house Friday and then his friend stayed with us last night. He may have not gotten much sleep but he had a good time.
Hopefully we can put some of our fears to rest after tomorrow. Hopefully what put Joshua in the hospital was just a virus or some silly bug that was floating around. Hopefully we can get him home soon.
Mostly we run on hope...
