03/17/12 - Happy St. Pats!

I love this time of year.  Today is St. Patrick's Day, time for our once per year corned beef and cabbage!  It's March Madness, and I love bracketology and stats (and competition, of course).  Plus softball season, Spring weather, Easter coming up.  Not to mention, my birthday is three weeks away (yep, on Easter this year!).  So, I have been horribly sick and cranky for over a week now, but counting my blessings and especially today when I could wake up and watch the rain for awhile.

Adam had his third clinic appointment of Interim Maintenance II on Thursday.  Three down, three to go!  The surprises included a chest x-ray for his coughing that won't go away (still no news or concerns other than that he has a cold), nausea (threw up just once on Thursday), and fever (Friday night, but seems to be gone now).  He is still taking the antibiotic for his ear ache, so that could be affecting his stomach, but I am thinking that the accumulation of chemotherapy treatments is harder on his body.  He didn't react to anything in the first 5 months, but the past 3 months it seems he has (and none are new, just the second time around).  It usually lasts a few days, and then he feels better.  His ANC is still high at 3500, so we are thinking he can go to his cousin's house tonight (date night, yeay!) and a birthday party Sunday.  Double yeay!  Still plugging along and getting positive reviews from the doctors.  We are even starting to see some peach fuzz growing back on his head.  Hard to see, though since it is pretty white!  Glad to see he will still be a blonde when it all comes in :)
