Playing hard… Day 797 20JAN11
Joshua had a fun filled day. He started off with a play date at our house with Wojtek who came over after lunch to have some fun. Renee and Ania took all the boys up to the park and they ran around and skated for a good long while. After getting cleaned up they headed for the Children's Cancer Center for family night and I met them there after I got done at work. We had a nice diner and then spent the evening talking to other parents and listening to updates on all of our kids. Several of our kids are either just finished with treatment or are going to be finished within the week which is amazing and wonderful news. It is always uplifting to hear that there is finally an end to the chemo that the kids have endured for so long. It also saddens us a bit as we are reminded that our road still stretches out in front of us and we still have a ways to travel. But we are always thankful for an end to treatment for any of our kids and the chance that they will live the rest of their lives cancer free. Joshua played extra hard with his friends tonight and he was wiped out by the time we made it home. He stayed up long enough to watch the tail end of the Bolts game which they won in a shoot out. As soon as it was over he curled up on our bed and promptly crashed.
