This weekend Cash has done quite well - he's only thrown up a few times and while he is not eating as much as he did pre-chemo, he is managing well. Today he even tried to walk and crawled around the house, getting into trouble with his brother.
Tomorrow we have a lengthy, 8 hour test in which they will test Cash's kidney (called an Iothalamate Test) to see how they filter and clean blood. We're bringing Jack Jr. and a bunch of Dora DVD's to pass the time as he'll be hooked up to 'the machine'. On Wednesday Cash has a few physical therapy appointments and I assume we'll be back one or two more times later in the week for blood draws. As of Friday his levels were dropping but haven't fallen to a point that would require transfusions which we're thankful for...
We did find out that Children's has spaces available for RV's - during Cash's next chemo treatment we are going to either use my brother's motorhome or my father-in-law's trailer. That way we'll all be 'on-campus' and Jack Jr. can stay with us - it will be good to have him there, Cash lights up when he is around - Jack constantly hugs him and says, "I love you little buddy." We all love our "little buddy" and continue to pray that this tumor shrinks and stops growing.
On another note, thank you to all who have provided meals for us - it has been a tremendous blessing not to worry about what to cook and the food has all be excellent. We are continually grateful for your support and prayers!
