Clinic Today...short and sweet

Our visit was short and sweet.  Everything looks good and they aren't changing any medication doses this time.

 Playing games of course...tonight he wanted me to take his temperature...when he didn't have a fever he said, 'darn, I like having a fever, then I get to play video games every day'. he he! ohhh dear.
They accessed him, pulled the blood, and administered the vincristine all at once so he didn't have to get tegaderm on again. AWESOME!!
For my records: today Ty weighed 17.5kg, (38.5lbs) that's up a little from 17.0 last month!  Ice Cream for breakfast in Florida must have saved the day! He is also a little taller! Yay!  He is 100.5cm which is about 39.6 inches.  That explains why he made it onto most of the 40" rides but not all of them, it depended on how strict the attendant was.
Thank you thank you for dinner!!!

Update: Monday Feb 25
Ty's steroid hunger came on pretty quick this time.  It is funny cause his cravings are exactly what they were last month.  I'm surprised he isn't gaining more weight cause he sure likes to eat on steroid week.  He must really not eat much the other three weeks! 
 For breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between Ty wants frozen Kirkland cheese pizza, no cheese can be melted over the edges, it has to be completely covered in parmesan, and it must have exactly 5 pieces of pineapple on it with a liddy cup of chocolate milk. (Oh! oops!  That piece has 6 pineapples! whew, I'm glad he didn't notice!)
  So far today he has had 6 pieces, and I've refilled his cup (about half full) 3 times.  He also had a bowl of pineapple, 3 carrots, some chocolate chips and a couple of cookies.  He's been pretty cranky on and off and wants to sit on my lap all day when he's on steroids, but really he is doing so so good!  We are so so thankful right now!
Always praying for our cancer buddies.  And asking a special prayer for our cousin who is having brain surgery tomorrow to remove a benign tumor.
