Parent's night out… Day 701 15OCT10
Joshua went to see the dentist this morning for the first time since he was diagnosed. We have had to be very careful about his teeth due to the possibility of any infection in his gums causing problems. He had to take a big slug of antibiotic an hour before he went to charge up his defenses. The report from the dentist was okay, a few problems here and there but nothing that he can't fix for Joshua.
The rest of the early afternoon was spent on school work. Later in the afternoon we all met over at my dad's house to visit for a while before we were supposed to be at the CCC to drop off the boys for our parent's night out.
We dropped them of with the great volunteers and met up with Ania and Lucas to go out and have dinner. We went to the Columbia Cafe down on the water right next to the Lightning's home stadium and had a wonderful time sitting outside on the terrace. The food was good and the company great. Not one of us left the least bit hungry and I am sure we will all sleep well tonight.
When we got back to the CCC to pick the kids up we found out that Wojtek had been really missing his parent's and several times had started crying and being very unhappy. We were told by several people that Joshua stuck right by him and helped him get through it each time and that he was a great friend. We also heard that Jarrod was a great big help with all of the little kids and several volunteers related how wonderful he was to have there tonight. We are both very proud of our two young men and how they behaved tonight. A big thanks to the CCC and all the volunteers for watching our kids while we went out to have a fun evening.
