Back on track... Day 313 21SEP09

Joshua went to the clinic this morning and got his counts checked. Everything looked good and he resumed taking his chemo today. It is a relief to finally have him back on schedule although it is a little weird still to be happy that he is taking chemo drugs again. In the long run it will somehow all work out.

While Josh was at the clinic Renee got him caught up on his bravery beads. When he got home we started stringing them up. His string of beads is getting longer and longer. It still hangs in my line of sight as I write this always serving as a reminder of just how tough Joshua is. I look at it often every day.

The rest of the day was consumed by school work and general household mayhem. Tomorrow Joshua will get a visit from his homebound teacher in the morning and I am sure send the rest of the day being a "normal" seven year old.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I'm glad you're counts are back in the "good" range and you're back on schedule.

What an amazing collection of bravery beads! It looks like it's long enough to wrap around the outside of the house.

Have a wonderful day and do only fun things.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
