We made it through another week!!!

Hello Everyone,

We made it through another week!! This week seemed like it was a very long one. Maybe it was all the back and forth and that it takes about 3 hours each time. He also had to get the thing put back in his arm for us to give him his HCG shots again. That didn't go so well and we found out that 10 days out of every month until the end of treatment he will have to have the shots. Yuck! John handled this round well for the most part but has been sick a few times. It mostly happens in the morning , early. One thing that has happened that John didn't mention last time is that his hair is falling out. We knew it was coming because the 48 hour chemo that we had is the one that causes that to happen. We noticed it one day when he gave me a hug and his hair was left all over my shirt. He thought it was funny and continue to pull clumps of hair out and stick it to my shirt. Thankfully that got old quick so he only has a few patches missing. I shaved it down more so that it wasn't so obvious This was the before picture. You can see where he pulled out some of it.

So after a long week he has had a pretty good weekend. On Saturday he got to play with his friend Joe and had a great time. He fell asleep in the car on the way home. He was sooo tired. Today we had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the Rivercats game. We weren't sure if he was going to be able to go because he was sick this morning, but he managed to pull through. For some reason he has become very shy lately and didn't want to throw the pitch so Jason got to do it instead.  Jason thought it was great!!! Thanks to the generosity of the Rivercats we got to enjoy the game from a suite. Our original seats were in the sun so we would have not been able to stay. John got to watch the game and enjoy his day out. Once again Rio Linda Little League had a lot to do with this day. Thank you Tina Geer and Sean Smith and all other members of this wonderful league! They have been so great to our family!! Gotta love that small town feeling

This is a picture of John at the game playing games on a phone.It was right before we left so he was very tired. All in all it was a good weekend and we only have one doctors appointment this week. We have another 48 hour chemo on the 30th.We are going to try to enjoy our break, except for the schoolwork.
