The day before... Day 249 19JUL09

Today is the day before. We get to these quite frequently as we trudge down the cancer trail. Tomorrow Joshua has another chance to qualify for chemo. He went to the grocery store with me this afternoon and picked out a special meal to boost his counts. He choose a nice caesar salad, some lovely cucumbers, a wonderful salmon fillet, and some frozen fruit pops for dessert. He is convinced that this will help him qualify tomorrow. I hope he is right. If for some reason he doesn't make it they will try again in another week or so.

If he does then he will get a LP and a new round of chemo and then come home.

The rest of the day went by rather slowly. Which is nice. I did yard work in the morning and the kids did some tie-dying with Renee before it got too hot outside. The rest of the time we rested and played games and spent time together.

I apologize for the horrible quality of the video but I had to be very sneaky to catch Joshua singing. I laugh every time I watch this :) This is why parents adore their children!

Wish us luck tomorrow and hope that we can get Joshua back on track and started on maintenance.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I sure hope the salad, salmon and fruit pops work their magic and you qualify.

I loved the video of you singing! You are so cute. I'm gonna watch it a bunch of times.

Hang tough Mighty Warrior - you are The Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Hey Josh, I loved the videos from your birthday celebration with your cousins and you singing! I knew you were a country boy - you have to be to be Renee's son!
Good luck today. I will call your Mom later. Love, Laura
