At the close of that week, he had a complete-overall body scan, had a central line put, and then started his very first round of chemotherapy. This was the pretty initial therapy he received…
In the times throughout the remedy, he ran some fevers off and on, which expected an further night’s stay at the clinic, and he shed his urge for food for about a day and a 50 %, but then it progressively arrived again.
He saved fast paced with trips to the playroom on his floor, tiny Lego kits, a Kiwi & Co box, a mini Lite Brite, his new Nintendo Swap, daily bingo on the healthcare facility Tv set, and loved to stop every day with the Paw Patrol motion picture.
He arrived residence feeling well and did not pass up a defeat, working all over and participating in with Joseph and Isabelle, and making the most of some lovely temperature outside. We experienced a lovely Easter all alongside one another at household 🐰
Nevertheless, that Sunday night time, he began running a fever, which we realized following owning a central line placed, intended an automated journey to the ER and most probably a 2-3 day stay at the medical center, through which they operate blood cultures to make confident there is not an infection. He was apparent of an an infection, but his counts were being pretty lower (he was regarded as “neutropenic”), so he had to remain until they had gotten up to a safe stage. He was back residence on Thursday and rolled appropriate into the weekend working about and taking part in.
Apart from a pair of days of low hunger, he hasn’t been ill therefore significantly. He did start to drop his hair previous week, so my husband gave him a buzz slice. Afterward, he appeared in the mirror and said, “I glance spiffy!” Oh to have the self confidence, resiliency, and coronary heart of a kid 💙
