Brrr… Day 759 13DEC10

Our day started off a little rocky. When I left for work Renee was getting the boys ready to head off to clinic. I got a call from her at about the halfway point to let me know her car wouldn't start so I turned around and headed back home. Turned out to be a dead battery and after a jump I had to send her off to Sears to get a new one on the way to clinic. So she got to add waiting around at the mall to her long list of things to get accomplished today. We just can't seem to catch a break on unexpected expenses this month. Joshua did great at clinic and his ANC is 1400 so we are good for now. Renee did find out that we had miscalculated when he is scheduled to start the next round of steroids. We thought it was the week after Christmas… turns out to be the week of with his peak on Christmas day. Should be interesting…
They headed towards home to get school going and run a bunch of errands until it was time to head out for the Children's Cancer Center Christmas party this evening. I was hoping I could meet them there but it didn't work out so they went without me. There were several Bucs players there and Santa dropped in for a visit. Joshua came home with the word "BOLTS" on his forehead and a lightning bolt on each cheek. Turns out they had face painting and he wasn't going to let an opportunity to support his team go to waste. The weather here has turned off pretty cold so we are all going to bundle up for the night and stay warm. Hope everyone else is doing the same :)

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Good news about your counts. Terrible news about the steroids though. I sure wish the schedule could change by a week either way.

Glad you had fun and got your face painted. I bet it will help with their next game!

Interesting weather we are having. I just checked and Uncle Eric has warmer temperatures than I do. And of my gosh are you guys going to be cold tonight. Make sure Caesar wears his woolies and puts an extra blanket on his bed.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
