Day 26

image

Here I am after my radiation treatment. I’m still asleep waiting for the anesthesia to wear off. Every day while I’m waiting for my turn the nurses wrap me up in warm blankets.

In the beginning of my treatments I was very cranky from all the steroids so I would just rest while I waited.  But now that I’m almost off the steroids I am feeling much better so I do artwork until its my turn.

Once I wake up all I have to do is use the bathroom, then I get another warm blanket in the stroller and were out the door… Usually we’re running to the cafeteria for lunch because we’re starving!  My favorite lunch is soup, grilled cheese and fruit salad.

4 more days to go!!

  1. You look so cozy in the bed! I hope you are feeling better. You are so so tough and strong and brave ( your family is too!) you’ll be home before you know it. Lots of love,
    Mel

    • John. You are a rock star.
      I Love warm blankets too. It reminds me of when we were kids like you and DeeDee would put our towels in the dryer before wrapping us up after a bath or coming out of the lake. It was sooo comfy, sometimes I even do it as an adult. 😉

      Ohh…you better hold out that net! I hear there are many Wish Flags blowing wishes you way!!!

      I Love You. Abby

  2. Hi Little Super Hero John, I just spent a couple really fun hours at a Meredith restaurant with your Aunt Becky and Uncle Pete. It was good to catch up on all that is going on over and around Gilford. The library was a really, really busy place this afternoon with so many of your friends coming to pick up Wish Flags. It sounds to me that you had better be well rested and feeling super strong when you come home because you need to be ready to party, party, party!!!! Lots of fun times are being planned to celebrate your homecoming and super powers! Hugs, your Uncle Pete’s Mom
