Day pass and dinner take 2... Day 306 14SEP09
Joshua got another day pass today and came home to do homework and generally just escape from the confines of the hospital. His ANC has dropped again to 68 so he still has to go back and spend the night. He has to hit either 500 or 14 days according to Dr. Tebbi this morning before he can get released to come home. So we are settled in yet again for the long haul and being a displaced family. We handle the logistics of being apart like the seasoned veterans that we are, it is the emotional part that really takes a toll on us the longer we do this. It has been really nice to have Renee and Joshua home these past two days. We have been able to eat together and sit together, talk and spend time with each other without the interruptions and distractions that plague us in the hospital. Tomorrow we expect more of the same. Joshua should get a day pass and be home mid-mornig. His new homebound teacher is supposed to pop in around three to get him started back on schoolwork. Meanwhile life goes on and we will hope that we are reunited on more than a temporary basis very soon.
