Tough day today. We were at the hospital from 9 to 4. Isaiah had blood drawn to check his counts, an x-ray to check for stress fractures in his lower back, a spinal tap, and four different chemo drugs: one in the spinal fluid, one in his thigh muscles, one into his veins (through his port) and one orally. Plus he fasted till 2. He's wiped out now and not feeling well. His eyes are all puffy. That's just a whole lot of chemicals for a little boy.
On a happier note, we had a fun night camping in my folk's pasture earlier in the week. Before the whole leukemia thing started, we were planning a backpacking trip. Almost daily during our hospital stay Isaiah asked if we could still go camping when he got out. So we adjusted plans a bit and did the best we could under the circumstances. It was a great night. And then Bita made us pancakes for breakfast.
