It's cold so let's skate… Day 1183 12FEB12

The morning dawned cold here in sunny Florida. Thankfully no freeze last night so the plants should be okay. We hung around the house until lunchtime when we got a quick bite and then headed off to the rink for a skate. It was pretty packed but we all had a really vigorous skate and enjoyed ourselves.

We hurried up afterwards to get out of our gear so we could get home to meet up with Renee to run some errands. First up was a stop at the  library to donate a bunch of books that we cleaned off of our bookshelves. Next we took Joshua in search of some new shorts and jeans, he has hit a growth spurt here lately and has outgrown all of his clothes. He is pretty pumped that he is getting taller and is already making plans to gain more altitude than me or his brother :) We managed to find some stuff that will work and then we headed for home to get some dinner and rest up a bit. The Bolts are playing the Penguins tonight so we all tucked in to watch the game. 

In the morning Joshua is going in for his final full service appointment with labs, pentam, vincristine, an LP and a bone marrow aspiration. This will be his last LP, bone marrow, and vincirstine tomorrow!!

We are getting close to the end and are looking forward to a lot more "last" things to come around. He will be pretty wiped out for a few days but it is something he can now remember instead of wait for the next one to come up.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Awesome, wonderful, fabulous beautiful and glorious news. The last full service stop at the clinic! I am eagerly awaiting the day that all these treatments and procedures are a fading memory.

And you go guy with the growth spurt. Altitude has very definite advantages.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
