Luxury accommodations... Day 211 11JUN09

Joshua and Renee were treated to luxury accommodations on the new Hem/Onc floor at the hospital. Just kidding. The blue couch/futon thingie was apparently not terribly uncomfortable according to Renee. Joshua has slept in so many hospital beds he doesn't seem to mind anymore.

Their stay was at least mercifully short this time. Josh got home just after lunch today and immediately went to work on his LEGO police command center. Although the official grand opening was only last week it was, according to Joshua, in need of a complete remodeling and rebuilding. The new and improved center was put back into operation early this evening.

He was a little tired after all of the chemo but other than that was doing very well. We are back to having chemo drugs in the refrigerator and I will start giving him his cytarabine in the morning. He is also taking a new drug thioguanine which is in pill form. We are keeping our fever fingers crossed as cytarabine in the past has caused his temperature to rise. So far he has stayed cool as a cucumber. Lets hope the trend continues.

I found this picture I took of Josh a couple of days ago when he and Jarrod were working in the garage. It was too cute not to share.

The shirt says it all...
