School day... Day 314 22SEP09

Joshua had school this morning with his homebound teacher. He seemed to be doing real well, we haven't had a visit from the chemo fog in quite a while. Hope it never visits again. He has been working on school stuff in the hospital when he is stuck and he is at least not slipping behind. We are in no hurry to send him back to "regular" school anytime soon.

I like having the kids home with us all the time. I consider us lucky to have the opportunity to spend as much time with them as we get to. Sure there are days when it would be nice to get a break or maybe sneak a nap in the afternoon but all said and done it is a great thing.

Joshua is feeling good so far and his chemo is back in full swing. Renee re-calculated and re-dispensed all his meds for this week and the weeks to come. It is a dizzying amount of pills and doses that change depending on the day and where he is in the treatment cycle. It will become second nature I am afraid before we are finished with maintenance.
