He said he had a good time but I think the majority of teenagers were younger than him. He's at this point where he's younger than all the patients going through treatment for Multiple Myeloma in Arkansas but older than most of the kids having treatment at Cooks.
Dr. Albritton asked him today to consider "designing" a website for their practice targeted at teenagers. I think it's something he should consider and that we should look further into. He's always been good at computers and this would give him something productive and helpful to focus on for a while.
I stood in the doorway and watched as they pushed his chemo meds today and I had one of those surreal moments when it hit me again that my baby has cancer. This flush and tingle spreads throughout my body. I ask myself how this could have happened and I know that all the other parents sitting in that waiting room must have those moments all the time too.
He's going to spend some time with his grandfather in Abilene and is leaving Thursday. It will be good for them to spend some time together.
Anyway, I've been awake since 2:00 a.m. and am pretty tired and drained so I think I will wrap it up for this entry.
