I made it back to Little Rock around 2:30 this afternoon and Tanner seems to be feeling better. He was actually working on a latch hook rug! LOL!! His dad and Janet bought board games, car models, and latch hook crafts and I take it Tanner has been keeping busy. Unfortunately (much to my friend Donna's consternation) I don't play games so I'm sure he really enjoyed their visit. He said he feels sure he can interest me in helping him with the rug he's working on and that I can help him finish it. I told him just wait until the nurses at the hospital see what he's working on!
He's officially neutropenic now so he will have to start wearing the mask when he's out in public. Even though his system has bottomed out, he is feeling better than he did those first days post chemo.
We go up to 7C for a 10 a.m. appointment tomorrow so I will get caught up on how he's doing. He said that he started showing symptoms of pneumonia again so they have him doing his breathing exercises throughout the day.
He sent me out to get the new Ice Age movie when I arrived today and we've already watched it. He's on the couch playing his X-box right now and I'm exhausted so I think I will call it a night and crawl into the air mattress.
I'm releived to see that he's feeling better!
