Steven is just over an hour away from finishing his bag of chemo from round 15. Then it is a typical methotrexate stay--we will be here until at least Friday morning and possibly until Saturday. So far he is doing okay. He is watching movies in an effort to stave off the nausea. I took his leg down to Shriners after we got here. The prosthetist decided not to make the modification that we had talked about and sent me home with it. It is complicated, but I am happy with the arrangement. Carrying the leg around, I think I got more stares than Steven did walking with it. He got to go to school for a few hours this morning and he wore his leg. He was really happy to be there and it made me sad to take him from school and up to the hospital. He was in the middle of PE and having a grand time. So here we go again! When this is done, he will have just three to go. The end is feeling tangible.
