A happy family
Overall Andrew is healthy, he still has a runny nose from a few days ago but other than that most people, most if the time, wouldn't notice that he is sick. That being said, to us, he is feeling a bit uncomfortable. He is happy and smiley most of the time, however if you aren't paying attention to him, he complains and gets quite clingy. In addition, when night time rolls around he becomes very difficult to console. This is normal though. The majority of the chemo's side-effects tend to start about a week after treatment starts and end about a week and a half after chemo ends. It seems to us that as long as he is distracted with playing with us or his toys, he doesn't realize that he is uncomfortable, but when he loses interest in his toys or is ready to sleep, he feels the discomfort and lets us know that he is feeling bad. I don't blame him, with all that he is going through, I am surprised that he isn't complaining more.
We are very grateful for all the love and support that we are receiving from friends and family. I know that we say that a lot, but it is true. The generosity of so many of you is always on our mind. We are grateful for all the prayers on our behalf. We also really appreciate all the meals and other generosity that so many people have given us.
