Bowling is a Christmas Eve tradition
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas. Grant woke up Christmas Eve not feeling too great but it didn't slow him down. In his words "this was a great Christmas". Of course, he got everything he asked for. We did get snowed in on Christmas Eve at my parent's house. So, we celebrated Christmas at home on the 26th. Thankfully, the boys knew no different. We are so blessed and loved so much that God sent His Son. How overwhelming!
Grant went back to the clinic today to start maintenance. We took Uncle Keith with us to show him around. They both did really well. ;) Grant struggled a little with the accessing of his port. But, nothing really abnormal. He still just has so much anxiety over it. But, after that, things were a breeze. Dr. Heym said his lungs sounded clear despite his pretty severe cold symptons and gave the ok to start treatment. His numbers had actually dropped even without being on any medications for the last 2 weeks, but were still ok as well. His loopy pill really worked well this time and he became very entertaining. His spinal tap went very smoothly without even a peep. Then, he got chemo in his port and he was deaccessed. He didn't even fuss when they pulled the tape off. I was so proud of him. He had a few bouts of nausea this afternoon, but seems to be feeling pretty good. He also started an oral chemo and his steroids tonight.
Please pray that Grant can get rid of his cold, so that he is not battling that along with all of the treatment.
