Hi my name is Finn Green. I am an energetic, caring, and tough soon to be 5 year old. My family has created this site so that we can update you on my fight against cancer! I want everyone to know that I am a tough cookie and will win this battle. I appreciate your support and hope you will check in on my progress as I defeat the forces of evil.
It's our 2nd monthly Stanford Day :). We flew up this morning, had a bunch of tests and now we're playing computer games and watching Rapunzel :). Finn is totally happy...it seems like coming here doesn't phase him at all. I'm glad. He loves the plane and taxi rides.
I was pretty tearful yesterday, I guess just being around all these memories.... Ted operated on my friend Suzie yesterday and when I went to the hospital to pick her up, I ran into a bunch of old colleagues of mine and I ended up telling them all about Finn. Just remembering those early days is kind of painful. But it was also fun to be in the hospital where I used to deliver babies and to have all those fun memories!! I miss it. I always felt honored to help people bring their babies into the world.
Finn's liver looked beautiful on ultrasound!! I love seeing it. His blood draw today was painful for some reason :(. Maybe they hit a nerve... Bummer. I hope it doesn't make him more scared of it in the future.
Our next visit in Jan will be longer and he will need an IV so he won't be happy. I was thinking about staying an extra day and doing something fun up here. We'll see...
He had a good week in school. He's learned a lot of sight words and is starting to read some little books! He loves all the painting, coloring, and playing with his friends. I love that he loves school so much.
The centerpiece where all the hallways meet in the hospital has a huge really cool train set. We always check it out for awhile. That's where today's picture is :)
