One good thing about not growing much..he gets to wear the same snowsuit he had last year.His week of steroids went pretty well this time. I was worried about preschool but he seemed to do fine and still enjoyed it. He didn't want to go to tumbling on Halloween and when we got there he was pretty upset that he was in a costume (it was a costume party). Steroids seem to enhance every emotion and it also makes him very particular about the way things need to be or should be. If they aren't that way it is upsetting and hard to process and handle. They also make him feel kind of crummy. I convinced him to go with the promise of a silly string prize when he was done and once he was out there he had a lot of fun. He had a great time at the neighborhood trunk-or-treat at the park, and we even trick-or-treated at a few houses after. His methotrexate rash (around his mouth) completely cleared up, that must have something to do with steroids cause he still had his pill that week, but the rash didn't come.
We'll do another CBC next week just to make sure he's good to hang with family for Thanksgiving.
