Well, we are now a couple of weeks into this new treatment and everything has changed – again.
In the first week, my sweet love has gained over 6 lbs. Yes… I am shocked as well. Eating, eating, eating. We have been to Outback almost everyday because he eats without us!!!! Praise God!!! For the first time in over a year and a half, we haven’t had to feed him or say “Take another bite Noah… take another bite”… and every meal takes 2 hours and we still throw it away. His spirits were up and things were going well. Dennis and I had very high hopes of both children going to school this entire week. Then Monday came and Noah woke up and couldn’t see. He has extreme double vision that is up and down.
Of course, we run to the hospital. They do a bunch of tests and conclude that it is swelling in his brain from the chemo and it’s … normal…a side effect. We are going on day 3. He is dizzy and wobbly. Noah has my scarf wrapped around his head over one eye. We sleep in my bed snuggled together so I can watch and hold him all night.
So… Happy Valentine’s Day!
Not being able to go to school and celebrate Valentine’s Day with friends, we did at home. The kids got crafts and books that they wanted and played bingo! We also made a video! What’s crazy is I am now sure that my children are from a different era!!! Look how well they fit it!!!
Thank you Heavenly Father for our blessings. We are blessed!
