Chemo round #4 wrap-up

Max came home this afternoon. Boy, was he happy to be back! Some new cars for his train set were waiting for him, sent by his Papa (my dad), and consisting of a boxcar and the all-important tanker car.

It's 8:00 p.m. and Max is asleep in his cozy bed. Out of all that he misses being away from home, Melissa and I think its his bed he misses most. The first night he is back from the hospital, you can just see him snuggle into his sheets in such a way that says nothing less than, "its good to be home".

Max is switching doctors. His primary oncologist, Dr. Moody is going back to NY and we'll miss her. But we are getting a good replacement in Dr. Roberts who heads the Hematology/Oncology group at Children's. For the next two weeks, Max will be having twice weekly clinic appointments and a blood transfusion here and there. On that note (blood), Melissa will be posting info soon on the next blood drive. Even though we had a GREAT turnout and therefore results from the last blood drive (thanks to all for accomodating the last-minute venue change and for hanging out in our garage during the rainstorm while waiting your turn), we're still going to have another as this blood not helps to serve Max's needs but other kids as well. Given recent news of the critical shortage at the SD Blood Bank, all who choose to give are encouraged to do so!
