We had a good weekend at home and were able to get outside and get the boys to get some sunlight and fresh air…it was so nice out this weekend! Braden is walking everywhere so my mission tomorrow is to find him some new shoes since he doesn’t fit into any that we have here. His “little” feet are too fat for all the shoes so this should be interesting finding something that fits!
Jack ran a couple of errands with Zac today and on the way home Zac got Jack a Happy Meal from McDonalds. When he got home and started eating it, we realized that his is his first Happy Meal since he was diagnosed! He got one on the way home from the hospital last March, but he hasn’t had anything since then! He does not have any food restrictions anymore (even though we still want him to eat as healthy as he can and eat as much veggies as possible!) so he was able to have food from a fast food restaurant. Also something a little funny…Jack is almost 4 years old and he ate his first hamburger ever. Not just his first McDonalds hamburger, but his first one. He ate it all. He has been eating like a champ the past few days. He has been trying, and finishing, all sorts of new foods that we have been making him and he always wants to “pounds himself” to see if he has gained back the weight he lost in the last round of immunotherapy. He has gained it back! So happy.
We have another few days off…no clinic until Friday. We stopped his Accutane tonight for this round so that’s good too. Accutane is such a pain to give to him. He doesn’t really mind it anymore and he hasn’t suffered from any side effects, but I have to wear gloves when I touch the pills because I have to poke little holes in the pills and try and squeeze every last drop out of the pill into a scoop of ice cream or yogurt. I cannot let the medication get on me because it can cause severe birth defects if you are pregnant. Obviously, I am not…but it is just a frustrating medicine so I am happy he is done with it for now. He starts his shots on Friday since we admit next Monday for round 3 of immunotherapy….Ugghhhhh.
Hope all is well with all of you and thanks for checking in on us!!
