Every day of each round brings new surprises.
|Morning "school" with the hospital teacher, Miss Theresa|
It didn't seem like it would be such a problem but there was a little bit of extra competition to use the Wii today (don't ask) and only so many times that you can play hide-and-seek around the floor, even with a few episodes of Phineas and Ferb along the way. By 4:30pm, Sam was getting more than a little antsy. Especially since the "library" - from which you can borrow movies - closes at 5pm on Mondays. Looking for new movies is an activity in itself -- sometimes we don't even watch the movies! So I got a little bit of an early reprieve. We were going to go downstairs at 4:45pm, right after Sam had his vitals taken. Except there were a few complications - a little tantrum that got out of control as Sam simply ran out of patience with the day.
|The other day, Sam had a "craving" for these cookies. Who craves Pesadik food in Tishrei? So Auntie Jody made a call....wow (thank you!!!!). Sam was pretty excited. (I tasted one. Yep. Pesadik.)|
Sam giggled and teased as his nurse took his last (awake) set of vitals for the night, so I knew that all was well.
|The nurse has to stay in the room for 15 minutes when running platelets to make sure that all goes well. I put her to work and had Sam read her a book!|
