Sleepy... Day 194 25MAY09

Josh spent most of today sleeping. He woke up at 3:00am and stayed up until 5:30 or so before he went back to sleep. One of the side effects of the steroids is insomnia and we think that is what is happening. He sleeps fitfully and will wake up at the slightest noise. We have decided to take him to the clinic first thing in the morning to get his counts checked, both us think he probably needs a transfusion. But the labs will tell us for sure. He has just not been himself this weekend and both us are a little concerned. With any luck it is just the cumulative effect of the chemo and his counts are okay. If not he can get what he needs to start feeling a little better. It is really hard when he is so totally wiped out.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I'm sorry to hear you are so wiped out and hope the visit to the clinic gets you up and moving again. It's not fair (and who said it was going to be?) for you to be feeling like a cooked noodle in a jar of sauce.

Hang tough little warrior - you are brave, courageous and determined.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Hey Josh, sorry you've been having a couple crappy days. I'm glad you had a great day with family on Sunday and know you're really excited to see your niece.

I hope the visit to the clinic is a good one and they can give you something to help (darn steroids anyhow). Continue to be the brave and strong guy you are and this will all pass someday and be but a memory.

Love, Laura and Frank
