Max is out of the hospital! Today! Our Max... out.... of the hospital.... he's home... in his bed.

His pain seems under control with the decadron. He's still Dr. Decadron and Mr. Max (ie, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) while on it, but pain free and emotionally unstable is better than the alternative!

He had radiation at 5:30 at UCSD/Moores. While there, we discussed the radiation plan for the growing mass in his skull (scary) and his S1, 2, 3 vertabrae (not so scary but we think maybe the source of his leg pain versus the disease in his femurs). We set-up on Thursday for skull and vertebrae, begin radiation next Wednesday hopefully.

Max receiving his radiation to his femurs today. The actual time it takes to administer the radiation is about 15 seconds. The appointment takes about 10 minutes from start to finish.

Woo-hoo! (I'm picturing Max on skate board, zooming in and out, with psychedelic colors in the back ground, just like you see in WaMu commercial...)
I know the battle is far from over and even more scarier treatment awaits. I hope Psalm 23 will have some meaning to you all:
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no eveil;
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff,
they comfort me.

I know this must sound silly but I have to tell you that I check the blog in the middle of the night every night (perks of having a newborn!) and I slept so much better last night knowing that Max was home in his own bed with all his favorite people near by.
Love and Prayers,
