Super Sib... Day 122 14MAR09


Joshua had a pretty good day. He is still pretty tired and spends most of his time resting but he is eating better. We think that the new chemo is just wearing out his tiny body. He is trying very hard to be his old self but it is more than he can do right now. He just does not have the energy. His temperature at least seem to have moderated and didn't get above 99.0 today. What a relief.

Jarrod got a trophy yesterday from Super Sibs for being a great sibling to Joshua. He is really a great brother and takes good care of Joshua. Super Sibs is an organization that recognizes siblings of kids with cancer and they provide great encouragement. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle for a sibling. We do our best to keep Jarrod from feeling like he is slipping into second place in our lives.



It was a beautiful day today and this afternoon Josh and I got a little hammock time in. He is a wonderful cuddler and we enjoy being outside when we can. One more day of rest and then he is back to the clinic for labs. I really hope his counts have stayed up. He body needs a break from fighting so hard all the time.

Hey Snaggle Snuggle Monkey,

So wonderful to see you smiling again. And icing on the cake to hear you are eating. Life doesn't get much better.

Glad you are doing so well and hoping it continues. I will keep everything crossed in hopes that tomorrow's labs are good.

Nice to hear you and your Dad are still associating with the Hammokians.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Nonna
