Clinic Today

 Ty watched Popeye on the way to PCMC this morning, he didn't want to stop watching, so we brought the DVD player in with us
 He weighed 15.8...what the?  That's almost 35 pounds, two pounds less than he weighed at diagnosis over a year ago.  I need to get some fat on those bones!
 The versed made him giggly today, he usually fights going to 'sleep' but today he thought it was funny and laughed at whatever the nurse said, which made the rest of us giggle too.
 He even cracked a smile for me while he was coming out of it. 
 The fishy wand was very mesmerizing as he lay there waking up.  He has to lie flat for 1/2 hour while the poke in his spine heals.
 Oops I should have rotated the picture, I took way too many pictures of course, that's just how I roll.  He's getting his vincristine and otter pop while dad sets up 'Meet the Robinsons' on the gamecube.
 He played for 1/2 hour more while he recovered from sedation...and got a new blanky.
 He likes to ride dad's shoulders at the hospital, it's a good place for him cause he can't touch anything...and they play a game of dodge the signs that are hanging down from the ceiling.
 Waiting for the drugs from the pharmacy, they have a cool train/carnival thing.
 He picked a big pink cookie from the vending machine and ate it outside while mom waited at the pharmacy
He managed to get a little DS gaming in before he fell asleep, he always sleeps on the way home after a sedation day.  It was a normal clinic day, we love Ty's doc and nurses they are so good to him, it is kind of strange that he looks forward to his visits to horsey doctor with happy anticipation.
 He stays on the chemo pill dosage that he is on, (yay!) his counts were right where they want them to be I think, and still no steroids (yay!).  His oncologist also said the reunion should be fine so off we go to party! We are loving maintenance now!  We hope it stays that way! CBC:  WBC 2.9, RBC 4.28, HCT 37.8, PLTS 295, ANC 1100
Thank you for dinner!! 
PS we got the puke smell out of the van...yay for Odoban, thanks for the tip Devri! : )
