Holding steady... Day 320 28SEP09

Joshua's labs came back good. He is holding steady from where he was when he was released from the hospital. His ANC and Platelets were almost the same. This is good news and is something we would definitely like to see continue. It took a while to get his vincristine delivered from the pharmacy but it finally arrived and we were set free for the rest of the day. We had lunch at Chili's to support the Cancer Cure drive. I mentioned to the waitress that Joshua was one of the kids they were raising money for and she told the manager who came out and gave Josh a nice t-shirt. It was a thoughtful gesture.

The rest of the afternoon we spent at home with the kids getting school work done and dealing with the rather sudden arrival of the prednisone monster. You see Joshua is back on prednisone for the next five days and it took no time at all in affecting him. Luckily this will be a short five day visit and he should be right as rain in a week or so. The vincristine he got today made him rather tired and he spent most of the evening curled up on the couch with the heating pad. He seemed to be feeling better when he trundled off to bed. Tomorrow is a visit from his homebound teacher first thing and another day of resting up.
