Resting up… Day 932 04JUN11
Joshua spent most of the day resting up for his big day at the hospital tomorrow. He is scheduled for vincristine, pentam, and his 9th LP of maintenance. He is only supposed to do 11 rounds of maintenance so we are getting closer to the end. We boys did take off for a bit and go skating at the rink, it was practice time for all of us and I am pretty certain we will be a bit stiff come morning. Renee got a quiet afternoon all to herself which I am sure she enjoyed. After an afternoon of just messing about the house Josh and I went for a skate while Renee rode on her bicycle. We had a good time and it was relatively cool out, which in Florida this time of year means that we didn't spontaneously ignite or anything like that. Afterwards the boys watched a bit of tele and we all settled in for the evening. Joshua is NPO until after lunch tomorrow which always puts him in a good mood :) We will all head up to hospital in the morning and watch them put our boy to sleep yet again and then come home to start feeding the monster for a week. The steroids have left Joshua alone the last few cycles for the most part and we are hoping that this round is the same. He has enough on his plate already without having to deal with the emotional forces of the steroids.
