Hospital Recap

He loves walking around in the grass. His first word might actually be “shoes” which is his way of telling us to take him outside!

I’m happy to report that Noah’s treatments in the hospital went relatively smooth this time around. After the first week he started to have some of the same symptoms as he did during the previous hospital stay but they were not nearly as severe. This being the case we were able to get in and out with no delays, thank goodness. All of his usual nurses were there and though they don’t want him to be in the hospital they certainly love to see him. He is apparently the “staff favorite” 🙂

Noah has been holding up surprisingly well as I’ve said before, especially considering the volume of chemotherapy drugs he is receiving. He almost always has a big smile on his face and is full of energy most days. One of his favorite things to do now is walk around outside regardless of the heat. We can’t (or shouldn’t) keep him out very long which he hates but it’s probably the highlight of his day, that or bath time. He also discovered the sprinkler the other day and enjoys walking right into the middle of the thing while it’s on. I guess I don’t blame him when it’s 100+ degrees out.

I’m a bit late with this update and he has had about 2 weeks to rest since getting out. We had to take him in for a blood transfusion and to get platelets last week but his blood counts are looking pretty good now. This coming week is another 5 day round of chemo from 8:30-5:30pm each day but in the doctors office. It should go smoothly but having a little one sit still for that long is always a challenge.

His big curl that keeps hanging on 🙂

Unfortunately Noah has lost most of the hair he did have left except for his one big curl, that one keeps hanging on! We’ve got some other great pictures and videos to share from the past few weeks so be sure to check back soon.
