The Shannon Family - Clinic Today
Hello. I know it's been awhile since we last posted. Last week was a little crazy, trying to juggle the hospital visit and catch up on work. Nick spent most of the week sleeping and did not have a lot of energy. He went to school on Friday for a Valentine's Day party. I think he had fun. He was definitely tired out from all the fun because he took a 4 hour nap after. He seemed much more perky this weekend and we had the Love family over Saturday night for some fun. On Sunday we decided to take a drive and headed to Marina Bay for lunch on the water. We feel like we are holed up in our house for so long and just needed the fresh air. It is tough sometimes for Nick because he can not go places with the rest of the kids. McD's is out for now and the weather has been so cold, that Nick just hangs at home. I tell Nick that spring is just around the corner..... Greg took Nick to clinic today. We were hoping to start another round of chemo. (again, it is the 3 wk treatment, this would be #4, out of 10), but after his blood work came back, we were told his 'counts' were not high enough. We have to go back on Friday and hope the counts are back up. Hopefully we will not be set back too much. He did receive the shot in the leg today..... 11 down, 19 to go.
