A day of play before... Day 216 16JUN09

Tomorrow Joshua is back to the hospital for an LP and more chemo. He will come home with his port accessed until Saturday which means he can't get wet or go swimming. So today he put in another day of fun to get ready to take off the next four.

He went to VBS this morning and had a lot of fun. Jarrod is on the VBS staff for the first time this year and he was making sure that Joshua was well taken care of.

After he got home and even though he has been running a low grade fever he had a play date with Cameron and Jayden. I took Jarrod to go bowling so it was just the little guys this time. Joshua really appreciated the fact that he was going to a play date without us or his older brother. It was a chance for him to be a little independent and enjoy himself. Renee and I can't think of a safer place than over at Jim and Sally's for Joshua to be.

He was pretty tired by the time he got home but his fever had left him. After a good dinner that Jarrod helped prepare he crashed on the sofa. His head was as cool as ever when I checked on him a little while ago.

To answer Robert's question: Yes Joshua does kind of look like an elf, and yes you would to if you were bald...;)

Joshua found this hiding under his bed... it was not happy to have been apprehended and was making a terrible ruckus. Last I saw it had been tamed and was living on top of a bookshelf.

Good Morning Snuggle "Elf Man" Monkey,

You are absolutely the most beautiful (if you will allow me the use of this adjective) elf look-alike I have ever ecountered. Inside and outside!

VBS sounds like lots of fun - especially with Jarrod on staff. He is indeed a wonderful brother (not to mention a great cook).

I though we were going to dismiss the "F" word from our lives! Did somebody forget to tell it that it had been banished? I'll try to send it some evil unwelcoming thoughts from here.

I'm relieved you captured the critter that was under your bed. It wouldn't be fun to awaken in the middle of the night and have it try and take over your pillow!

Hang tough mighty warrior - you are a champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
