As soon as I get a chance, I will get pictures to prove this, but my boys spent most of the day building LEGOs again today. Finally, around 4pm, they emerged from their room for a little break. They both moved onto their other favorite pastimes: Steven read a book and Andrew teased his sisters. Rob was back at work today, but still not feeling 100%. No lab results for him yet. Tomorrow Steven is due for labs again and I will be shocked if he doesn't need a blood transfusion. I've never seen his so lethargic. He was in a good mood, just very quiet and still. As I was putting him to bed tonight, I took his temp and it was up just over 99. It may be nothing, but his counts are low now, so it is a big possibility. Hopefully I won't be writing from the hospital tomorrow. I kind of feel like I'm in stress limbo right now--nothing concrete to really get me scared, but lots of worrisome possibilities to keep me on edge.
LEGOs are not my favorite things, but today I felt like I needed to spend as much time as I could with the boys. I helped them sort and find pieces and tried to clean a little to find some lost LEGO pieces. It was so nice to spend some time with them, and I don't even mind that it is 10:00 and my kitchen is trashed. They were darling. At one point I made some comment about everyone seemed to be sick around here. Andrew said, "Well only Dad and me are sick--that isn't even half of us!" Steven and I exchanged smiles--it was just kind of funny that Andrew doesn't see Steven as sick.
