Full day… Day 933 05JUN11

Joshua had a full day at the hospital. He got to the clinic early this morning and they got him accessed and then he got his vincristine followed by his breathing treatment. Next stop was the day hospital for his IT methotrexate and his LP. He did great during he procedure and took over an hour to come out from under the anesthesia. He takes a full adult sized dose to put under since he has gotten it so many times before. As soon as he woke up he wanted a cola and some cookies which the nurse gladly got for him. They got him de-accessed and unhooked from all the monitors and we were out the door. We all headed home and spent the day resting and getting a few things done around the house. Joshua did okay tonight with the steroids but he was having a really hard time falling asleep. The steroids frequently give him a bad case of insomnia and make him sleep very restlessly. I am hoping he can get a good night's rest so he won't be tired tomorrow, it just makes thing worse :) So just another "normal" day for all of us...

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

I sure hope the sandman came and dusted your eyes well enough for you to get a full night's sleep.

Yikes! An adult dose to put you under - that's pretty scary.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior and keep the monster in the closet. You are my champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
