We check in today at 1 for our overnight infusion. I have a ton of things to do before we go. Hotel is booked. We did not get a hotel near the hospital but that is ok. We are by the airport which I prefer because we won't get in till almost midnight on Sunday. With the hotel being close, I don't need to worry that our bed won't be far away. Need to double check a few other things.
Yesterday we took Elexis up to see the pediatrician (I swear I should just wear scrubs everywhere, so I fit in with all my medical peeps, after all I am at some kind of medical facility, all the time, lol). She has a strange rash covering her entire back. Ya know how I love rashes. Rashes are a big deal! Anyway, our doctor wasn't quit sure what it is. I know exactly what it is. But I am leaving tonight and then again on Sunday so I wanted to be safe, not stick my sister with having to take her to the doctor if it got worse. It is from excessive swimming, and sun exposure. The doctor we saw did run down the usual list of questions. Does anything hurt? Your muscles? I felt like grabbing the man by the collar and saying like Clint Eastwood, "don't go there doc, I ain't in the mood for games, I already got one with achen muscles, rash, I don't got it in me to do two of um now." But I didn't do that. That would have been scary. He may have produced a needle and stuck me with some sleepy juice to get my hands off him. I know, I have quit the imagination. But she is fine. Just needs a little scrubben and some lotion. If it doesn't get better, than we can come back.
Gary continues to do better. Yesterday wasn't as good as the two days proir. He was more ouchie yesterday and by 7pm he was asking to go to bed. He wanted to lay with Mommie in bed. I am sure until we can get this into remission, we will always have our good days and bad days.
Another angel dropped a wonderful gift in the mail for our family. No return address, no names to properly thank you. Well we thank you! WOW, my children especially loved it! Thank you. Those will come in handy. I will try and update from the hospital later on.
