Never Give Up
The picture below is our experience when I took Clayton out to the suspension bridge to feed the ducks earlier this week. We are really looking for "field trips" and learning experiences to get us out of the house, but also away from crowds. While his counts aren't terrible, they're not the best they could be either. We just try to avoid big groups and stay as healthy as we can. So far, so good. I've almost been scared to say for fear of jinxing myself, but Clayton is just doing so well on his therapy. He has not experienced many of the side effects that are so dreadful and scary with chemo. Besides a little nausea a week after the Big Chemo, he's been feeling good. He does get fatigued easier than normal, and he does look very pale, but other than that, if he wasn't bald, I doubt you'd guess anything was going on with him. I have noticed that he's lost most of his eyelashes too. This probably adds to his pale appearance.
As a random family side note, I do have 3 other kids, as you know... Kate spent last week working hard and trying out for Goal Tenders at Midway High School. I'm proud to say that she'll be under the Friday Night Lights next fall dancing with the team on the field. Congratulations to my Kate! Can't believe she's headed to high school and can't believe the beautiful lady she has become!
