Rough day… Day 711 25OCT10
Joshua had a pretty rough day at clinic. His port was acting up and they could not get it to flush or get any blood return. He got poked by one nurse and then another and another. Finally they decided to send him for a dye study to see if they could figure out what was going on. His port finally decided to function correctly and the dye study came back clear. He got his pentam treatment earlier but had to wait on his vincristine for a while. So all told Renee and the boys spent the better part of the day trapped at the hospital. Needless to say they were pretty wiped out by the time they made it home. I talked to Joshua from work this evening and he related all the trials and tribulations of his day to me. He said his port had three different holes in it and that he was going to leave the bandaid on for the night. He also told me it was the only time he had cried when they were accessing his port and that he had not had a very good day. Amazing how brave he can be at eight when things like that are happening to him. So for tomorrow we will hope for a much less difficult day than this one turned in to.
