4800 hours... Day 200 31MAY09
Today marks two hundred days that we have been a cancer family. It seems like a strange thing to take notice of or celebrate. But as a cancer family these kind of milestones are important to us. It means we have worked together to get here.
The surprising news this morning was that the kids, all of them, spent the entire night in the tent. Joshua came home this morning and I asked him how it was. He replied, "Best nights sleep I have had." Good for him. He and Jarrod both had a great time camping out with their cousins.
We went over later in the morning for breakfast and to take down the Taj ma Tent. Jarrod and I managed to get it down and folded without too much trouble. The rest of the afternoon was devoted to yard work. Even the boys pitched in and helped out for a while.
Joshua continues to do great, his appetite has not even begun to slow down. He is still eating all the time and has actually managed to get a little meat on his bones. His energy levels have been back to normal for the first time in quite a while and we are all enjoying it.
The rest of the week is going to be hectic. Joshua will go back in on Wednesday to see if he qualifies and if he does we will be in the hospital for a couple of days doing another round of chemo.
