The Past Few Days

We have had a pretty good first week with proton therapy.  Yesterday, however, we received a call at 8:00 a.m. just as we were getting ready to head over there and they had had a power outage and the proton machines were down.  We waited for the call to tell us it was up and running, but by noon I canceled his appointment - Cash was hungry and ready to drink his milk.  They did get the machines back up around 4:00 and today we continued his treatment, the appointment we missed will be added to the end (tentatively set for June 16).

Cash tolerates the radiation pretty well - he is definitely more tired and tells us, "night-night" around 6:00 p.m.  I try to keep him up a bit later because he's also been waking up very early (4:30/5:00 a.m.) - when he wakes up he immediately wants milk, but on treatment days he can't have milk or juice so we have to keep him busy and his mind off of milk...

Tomorrow we'll be heading to an Astro's game and I'm excited to see how Cash reacts to the crowds and stadium (although I hear the Astro's are about as bad as the Mariner's right now, maybe there'll be no one there).  My parents are still here and have provided incredible support - I haven't lost any weight because of their great cooking.

No baby yet either (hurry up baby!), however, Wendi is doing well and I'll continue to post any updates on that front.  I hope everyone has a great mother's day weekend and thank you for your support and prayers!
