* Today is the first time in months that Vampboy is not accessed (no needle in his chest). He’s doing so well with this light chemo round that we’re able to take him off most of his anti-nausea drugs, and administer what little medications he currently needs orally.
* Tonight was the first time in months that, since there was no aforementioned needle to worry about in terms of infection, Vampboy took a bath — in a tub filled with water, up to his chest. He laughed, he splashed, he chased a plastic dolphin around the tub.
* Tonight was this first time since early July that I read my son a story and put him to bed in his own crib. It will not last the full night, as he will need to be hooked up for the “evening feed”, but it felt good to return to the old routine
* It is six months ago today that this journey started. Time flies when you’re in hell too — who knew?
