On Friday Brian had an infusion and some blood drawn for labs. Now that he has his surgery behind him we can move forward and enjoy Brian's new chemo/clinic routine. We go to the clinic once a month for an infusion and labs. At home Brian is taking two different chemo drugs orally. One he takes daily and one is once a week. Brian was thrilled to find out this past Friday that his next clinic appointment (which means getting his port accessed) is not until Jan. 14th.
On Saturday (Dec 18) our family went to the Gulf Coast Wings of Hope Christmas party. It was such a good experience for Brian to see his two doctors outside of the clinic and hospital. He was really nervous and excited, but it was really good for him because we have heard lots of chatter from him about Dr. Chatch and Dr. Schwartz since yesterday's party. I will do another post in the next couple of days all about the party and include some pictures. It was a really good experience for our family. It was nice to meet other families that have had a child go through chemo.
Here is a picture of Mommy and Brian from this past Friday. We were in the play area picking out some books to take back to B's room. His monthly infusion is an hour long. It's kinda sad to watch Brian walk with his blue pump. He knows how to move with out getting his tubing tangled. Definitely one of those things I never thought we would have to do.
