IVIG kind of day… Day 700 14OCT10

To celebrate reaching his 700th day Joshua got accessed and spent most of the first half of his day getting another IVIG transfusion. He did great and had no reactions or issues, he even did good into the evening when he usually gets really tired. When I got home he was outside playing and was showing no signs of being fatigued. We had a new nurse today which worked out okay and Joshua seemed to like her. It is always a little scary when we have to deal with someone new who does not know Joshua's routines and how he likes to handle things. Joshua has gotten quite good at letting medical people know how he wants to do certain things and handles it all quite well.

So we can put another IVIG treatment behind us until next month when he will be due again. We are hoping that his counts will start to level off as the transfusions continue. Tomorrow the boys have  another school day on tap and then a fun evening for all of us at the Children's Cancer Center.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I guess I should be really glad you are able to let the doctors and nurses know how you like things done...

Glad to hear the IVIG went well and that your energy stayed up. Hope you had tons of fun outside.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
