A Blessing of a Day

Although I doubt it will last, today was a good day. Tyler was experiencing no effects yet from his treatment, his throat was feeling a little better, and he said he was a little bit hungry. All in all, he seemed to be in pretty good spirits, so I am VERY thankful that he survived the first 2 doses so far.

He gets dose 3 tonight and dose 4 in the morning. We expect the majority of the complications to hit next Wednesday or so, with the mucositis being the one I most fear. But Tyler was feeling good today and Dr O'Meara thought it was possible that it might just be due to the fact that we are treating his leukemia and whipping it into shape.

Thank you so much for sending laughter and encouragement our way! Let's hope this next dose gets the job done without many new side effects.
