We’re home again!! …after our shortest hospital stay yet!! (only three days!)
Thank you for praying! Chase had a successful central line surgery on Thursday and his Friday and Saturday chemo passed without any excitement (adverse reactions, weird vitals, etc, just the usual “excitement” involved in AT/RT chemo…)
A couple updates on the specifics for which I’d asked prayer:
- So far, the central line is holding and has not infected!
- The cancer is still in his spinal fluid, but that we entrust (as always) to the One who made him.
Our next scheduled chemo clinic is Thursday and we have high hopes that Chase’s white blood count will still be high enough that we won’t be admitted at that time.
I will leave you with a small picture of my Saturday hospital experience… Chase, with his track pants and light-up Spiderman shoes, sans shirt, chest wrapped in an ace bandage, stomp-running down a hospital hallway (while trailing a large IV pole) pointing at medical staff and growling “No smiling in the hospital!” …
Never a dull part of our moment by moment …
