What a day....

Cody and I were out the door by 6:30 this morning. We had to be at clinic by 7:00. Cody did pretty good this morning. He had a CT scan at 8:20 so he had to take contrast 1 hour before. That went very well and he actually fell asleep on during the procedure. The rest of the day was screwed up for the most part. Cody held up very well though. His bone marrow was at 11:30 and he had a PET scan at 4pm. Do you know what that means? It meant that he couldn't eat or drink anything except water until 5pm. It was not easy. I made myself hold out until he could also have something. But through some rough times we made it. We had to cancel our 5pm flight so we decided to stay the night and ride the train home tomorrow. We are going to catch the noon train and get into DC around 3pm.

We won't know the results until next week. I'll be sure to let everyone know when we get the results.

Last night we went on a trip to the NYC Fireman's Museum. Cody had a great time and I got some great pictures. He also made some new friends at the Ronald McDonald House. I'll be sure to post them this weekend. Spending so much time at the hospital and RMH it really puts things into perspective for me. For as bad as I think we have it sometimes it's easy to see that there are people who have it worse. I watch these kids and it's hard not to get a heavy heart.

I'll post more tomorrow...

God Bless!!!

Mickey I know what you mean, I use to think that running a marathon was hard until you see what these kids have to go through. Their strength is incredible! I hope the trip home went well. I will be praying for good results this week!
