IVIG again… Day 791 14JAN11

Joshua got up early this morning to get ready for his IVIG transfusion. Ms. Caroline showed up at 8 and had a little trouble get his port to work right. She had to stick him three separate times until she could get good blood return. After that it was a pretty normal transfusion which he finished up after lunch time. His teacher was here as well this morning and he sat at the table with his IV pump doing his school work. Once again we are thankful for no adverse reactions to the IVIG and other than his port being a little frisky it wasn't a bad day. Jarod and Joshua spent the rest of the day playing and Joshua was doing pretty good this evening, not overly tired like he can be sometimes after a transfusion. We watched the hockey game, they lost :(, and then the kids headed for bed. Our weekend is clear on the calendar so I think we will all just rest a bit and try and get things taken care of here at home.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I'm sad to hear there was difficulty getting your port accessed. It seems totally unfair that you should have to be stuck more than once (or at all, for that matter).

Sorry to hear the Bolts lost. Must be the weather - unless you forgot to rub the lucky shirt.

Dylan absolutely adores the truck you gave him. I can sing the recycle song in my sleep now!

Uncle Eric is taking Dylan skiing for the first time today. It hopefully will turn out to be tons of fun, giggles and laughs.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

And I really miss being with you.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
