Nothing til Jan
Written Dec 13, 2013 9:35amHey all, I am sorry for not updating sooner, I sometimes get confused between here and facebook about what I have posted. Everything with his last blood work was fine. His platelets increased which showed that his bone marrow is starting to work normally. He had a touch of pneumonia, but he seems to be much better now, not coughing at all anymore. He does still have some swollen lymph nodes in his neck. They don't hurt at all which kind of worries me, when he turns his head I can see them...which totally freaks me out. But I keep telling myself that it's not coming back this time...I hope I am right.
Collin had his Christmas Program at school last night. We normally don't go because the kids don't ever seem interested, but he was geeking about it this year. So we went and he sang, I am trying to upload a video for gma and gpa to youtube so I will post a link to that later when it's done, he was very funny and super cute. He spent the majority of the program trying to tell us something...which ended up being that he wanted his brother Patrick to sit down front where he could see him. geez that kid is a mess!
Collin's next appointment is the first week in January...the whole month of December was off for him! WOW! But they are counting down the days to Christmas! Kids are so funny. I am going to spend today cleaning and getting things ready for this weekend...hopefully have a quiet weekend at home watching some Christmas-ey movies and drinking hot cocoa! One of our favorite traditions for Christmas Eve is watching The Polar Express with the kids and reading Twas the night before Christmas. We also like to get everyone a new ornament each year and by far my favorite is getting a goofy ornament to hang on the tree each year. This year we got a pink elephant! so funny! The kids always help me decorate too, I love the holidays, but they are exhausting aren't they!!! Well hope to have no news for a while, I will try and remember and post something after the new year with his counts being perfect and all *wink wink!
Written Nov 15, 2013 1:54pmHad some blood work done this afternoon...just to ease my concerns...hoping I am just being overbearing! He was really tired yesterday when he came out of school, wanting me to carry him. Then last night he said he felt like his cancer was coming back, wondering if this is legitimate feeling, as in he feels off or if it is just anxiety...either way I don't blame him. Then today he had a nosebleed at school. It wasn't a really long one which is encouraging, if it was something with his platelets I would be exceedingly concerned...but the labs are drawn and we should have some results hopefully before the day is out...if we don't hear anything before 5 then we prob won't know anything til Monday. Anyway, here's hoping I am just a paranoid looney toon! lol
