Clinic, school, and soccer… Day 808 31JAN11

Joshua had a rather busy day starting off early with his usual trip to the clinic for counts. His ANC has stayed up at 1035 which is good considering his recent hospital stay. His platelets are down a little from where they have been but are way above the mark where we start to get worried about tiny little bruises and start padding the furniture. As soon as he got lab results it was time to head home to meet with his teacher and get back in the swing of things for school. He did very well and had a good day with her. Yeah!

The afternoon was spent playing outside with Jarrod and hanging about the house until it was time to go see Taylor and Avery play soccer. I understand the games were very exciting and Joshua has decided that when he is not playing hockey he thinks he would like to be a goal tender on a soccer team. He did mention that he was going to wait until his port was out before he signed up for a team however. Amazing how practical an eight year old can be. So we get to start off the week on much better footing than the last one and head into February full steam ahead.

The great love bug!!!! I am so proud of you!! Glad to know that your counts are still high :-)
Doing good on your school work us always a good thing too.
Today was another beautiful day to be outside playing.
Taylor and Avery playing soccer! I will have to see when their next games are because I would love to see them kick soccer butt ;-)
Well we love you bug and Allie is alot better now. I think it might be her teething as far as her fever and her not wanting to eat much. But we shall see.
Love you

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Can't tell you how glad I am to hear that you will wait until your port is removed before you become a soccer goalie! Good thinking on your part. Now, if we could just get your brother Christian to use the same brain waves .......

Good to hear that Miss Allie is a bit better. She's just too cute to have to be under the weather.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
