It's time for another update on Jacob, post treatment! It's been 2 1/2 weeks since Jacob has received any chemo! He has much more energy now and the house is more noisy than it has been for quite some time. He does not need to get twice weekly lab draws any longer, his color is improving, and we see tiny hairs sprouting on his head!

Next Wednesday, the 14th, Jacob will have surgery to take the port out. It will be about an hour long procedure, though we will be at the hospital awhile after he wakes up and returns to normal. It should not be an overnight stay and I'm hoping this is his last surgery ever for him. It will be good to get the port out as we will no longer need to be worried about a line infection or obsessed about and admitted for fevers.
Jacob is working on 1st grade work. Jacob is excited about his upcoming trip to Disney World. Jacob is loving the cooler weather and is spending lots of his time outdoors now. Jacob is once again wrestling and roughhousing with Joe. Jacob is feeling wonderful - though he gets tired out more quickly and still takes naps - he is enjoying just being a kid again.
