Today was a special treat for little man, when we arrived at MDA the Rice Tennis Team was waiting! They came to be here with him for his treatment today. :) we just love those guys!!! They were able to go back with us to see him get accessed and put under. He had a little trouble going under anesthesia, but once he was finally knocked out he was fine. After we leave here we will head back to our apartment to rest before we have to be back at TCH this afternoon for more appointments.
Gammy met Bennett and I at MDA this morning for our 14th radiation treatment... Halfway done! :) little man had a hard time falling asleep with the anesthesia, he kept fighting it, but once he was finally out, he was snoring away! We have our weekly see appointments with Dr. McGovern and Dr. Rednam today from 1-4...will update later with those meetings. We were able to finally get a picture of him with his mask on...
Today Mommy & Bennett were solo for their day 15 of radiation. We didn't have to be there Til 8:30, so we were able to sleep in, which was a treat. We brought a few Bennett's Bears with us to give to 2 of our friends we have met that are getting treatment here...They were running simulation on new patients this morning so it pushed us a little behind. He finally was taken back to be put under at 9:30. He fought the anesthesia like usual...which means he will more than likely wake up super grumpy... We have to be at TCH for therapy from 1-3 later today... I really feel as though we live at te hospital. :/ -Mommy Nester
Mommy and Bennett were solo again today...and it's been an eventful morning... Bennett has been constipated from the radiation so his doctor prescribed miralax and generlac to help him hvave a bowel movement... And it worked... All over his pants... In the radiation play room...awesome. Lol. Other than that it's been pretty uniform like all other days. Going under anesthesia he is beginning to become more and more combative. He knocked me in the side of the head today. :( I'm sure he will be grumpy when he wakes up. :/
It's Friday! Wahoo! Mommy and Daddy took Bennett to radiation at 7am this morning and got a special visit from Papa Dick! :) everything rolled out as it usually does, he fought his anesthesia and woke up in recovery VERY grumpy. :/ hopefully he gets out of that mood, but under the circumstances I can't blame him. So excited that we have 11 days left of treatment! :)
