Jacob is doing extremely well. This boy thrives when he is home and seems almost normal right after arriving home from the hospital where his body is pumped full of toxic drugs.He becomes himself again at home. Making a house with "rooms" on the floor with blankets with his brother and sister. Chasing them around the house. Bouncing around with pent up energy.
He does tire out more easily. He does sit quietly on the couch more often, playing with a toy, coloring, looking through books, or watching television. But he is still Jacob. The boy who can light up a room with his smile. The one who craves tacos and likes to help me make them so that he can eat five of them (though last night he only managed to get three into his tummy). Without his bald head and pale complexion you almost wouldn't know that he was sick.
Besides a small cold that he has he hasn't had any complications. His blood counts were down on Tuesday but up enough on Friday that we could stop his G-CSF shots (to boost his white cells). His next treatment will be this coming Friday and we only have to stay over for one night so will be home sometime Saturday.
