Yesterday we finished week 31 and were home in time for some Halloween fun! We are now into Round 3 of our treatment schedule. The end is near and the thought is hopeful and frightening at the same time.
This week was long and at some points difficult. Shane had been off of treatment for 2 weeks (per his schedule) and then started the 5 day outpatient regime. His body took time to adjust to the chemo. He got sick a lot in the beginning- on the car ride down to CHOP and in clinic and then it eased up to only the car ride and then not at all by Thursday and Friday. Of course he was in good spirits and smiling, but also he slowed down a bit and just relaxed too.
He went trick or treating in clinic-yep that’s what cancer kids do. He had a blast getting treats in his pumpkin and kept going back for more. He joined his brother and sister last night as he strolled through the neighborhood holding his pumpkin. It was a good ending for a long week.
