Dreamless sleep… Day 1017 29AUG11
Renee and Joshua left early this morning for the clinic. Joshua got his port accessed and then received his pentam breathing treatment. Jarrod and I got up had breakfast and got a few things done around the house before heading up to the hospital to be with Joshua during his LP. We arrived in time to spend a little bit hanging out with him before the Doctors arrived and he was sent off the the dreamless sleep while we watched. It is always hard to watch him slip away into the dreamless world no matter how many times we have witnessed it. We trudged out to the waiting room like we always do and waited for the Doctor to come out and give us the thumbs up which he did after a short while. Good thing because we have come to really dislike the period of time between the closing of the door to hi treatment room and the Doctor walking out. I had to leave for work after I said goodbye to Joshua's still and sleeping form. He awoke an hour later and was fine albeit quite hungry. He had to walk back over to the clinic to get his vincristine and get de-accessed so he could head home. The rest of the afternoon was pretty normal for an LP day with Joshua being a little tired and achy. We get to put one more of these days behind us and dream of the day when we won't have to wait for the Doctors anymore.
