Another round… Day 766 20DEC10

Joshua started another round of maintenance this morning with a trip to the hospital. He got accessed and then received his vincristine through his port followed by his pentamidine treatment. After a little play time he headed over to the day hospital to get his IT methtorexate in his spine. The anesthesia went fine and the procedure went off with no problems. We have done this so many times it is almost routine but it still scares me every time. I never sleep good the night before and although I have total faith in the Doctors and Nursing staff I still worry. So do Renee and Jarrod and you can feel it in the room. Especially as we wait for him to wake back up. Just as Joshua was beginning to wake up he got a visit in his treatment room from Santa and some of his helpers. Joshua received a cool Star Wars LEGO set and Jarrod got an iPod shuffle. They were both totally thrilled and as soon as Joshua got home he took over the floor in the living room and started building. I helped him finish it up before we settled in to cheer our Bolts on to victory. Joshua made sure he had his lucky shirt on and Stamkos had a great night along with the rest of the team. We also started another round of steroids this afternoon and so far Joshua has been on a pretty even keel. Here's hoping that it stays that way :)

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I'm relieved to know all went well at clinic. And I'm delighted to hear the Bolts won! Go Stamkos.

Fat Man's getting ready to fly soon and I sure hope the monster stays hidden.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
