Another trip… Day 1100 21NOV11

Joshua took another trip to the land of lost dreams today while the doctor injected chemo into his spinal fluid. We have watched him be put to sleep more times than I care to dwell upon and it never gets any easier. 

He did fine and was awake and ready for pizza by early afternoon. My dad was only to happy to oblige and Renee along with all the kids spent the afternoon at his house having a nice visit. I was able to sneak away from school for a bit and have a bite and enjoy everyones company before they headed for home and I headed back to teach my night class.

Joshua did okay for the rest of the evening and was fast asleep on my side of the bed when I arrived home. We got to start another round of steroids today as well and since Joshua's weight has increased so has his dosage. None of us are sure what the extra steroids will do but all of us have our fingers crossed that the monster will stay caged up for the week.
