Another day down! Today was pretty uneventful. He got some blood today and is getting his 1st of three chemos now. The one he is currently getting is a tricky one. They have to watch him carefully to make sure he does not have any type of allergic reation. If he does, that have to stop the medicine and give him a shot. Last night he handled it just fine, but they are telling me that that does not mean he can't have a reation to it now.

Today we just hung out, went on walks and wagon rides, ate, and played in the room. It has been a pleasant stay so far. David and I prayed that he would be like this. It is amazing to see all these kids up here that are getting these crazy strong chemos and are running around the hallways as if they have nothing wrong with them and that they are not hooked up to an IV pull. It is great to see him so happy. I hope we continue on this path.

Tomorrow is Grant's 3rd birthday! I am going to head up to the blood drive in Humble around 5:00 p.m. and then go home to get Claire. She and I are going to pick up a huge cake and bring it back up here to the hospital to celebrate!
