Fruits of their labour... Day 196 27MAY09




Crews were hard at work today putting the finishing touches on the new LEGO police command center. After a careful inspection by the project managers it was officially opened for business. If you look closely you will see a coffee maker in the break room as well as a microwave. This thing is amazingly detailed and well equipped. Joshua and Jarrod had a great time putting it together. They amaze me with their respective building skills.

Today was Joshua's last dose of dexamethasone. We all breathed a collective sigh of relief. The steroids have really done a number on our little guy. His batteries ran out just after dinner and when they run out he just shuts down. Unfortunately the steroids also make him wake up every two hours or so all night so he barely gets any rest. They should be out of his system in the next 36 to 72 hours. We will be hoping for an improvement starting late tomorrow. Our next hurdle is to qualify for the next round of chemo this coming Wednesday. Hopefully his counts will stay up and he will not get delayed.

Good Morning Snuggle Monkey,

Awesome construction you two!!! With project managers like you, the world will be a prettier place. Can't wait to see what's on tap for the next project.

Crash and burn little warrior - get those nasty steroids out of your system; they've been there long enough. You're doing a powerful job kickin butt and you've got the determination to keep going.

Hang tough mighty warrior.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Nonna

Wow! It even has a satellite connection - that's the coolest thing ever! The Gazillion Lego lovers of the world have to be so envious of your talents - the Gandy Brothers construction company totally rocks!

We'll all be so happy when those nasty steroids are out of your system and you can rest and recuperate.

Love, Laura & Frank
