Pray for Grant

Wow, it is really raining. Grant and I are snuggled in my bed and we are wondering how Claire can be sleeping through this.

Today is our last day home together before our our 1st week of hospital chemo starts tomorrow. Grant will get 3 different chemos every day for 5 days. Then on day 6 they will give him fluids and send us home with a series of shots that they will teach us how to give him. The shot is supposed to help his bone marrow produce white cells more quickly. Basically, the chemo will knock out everything and he will have to recover from it before the next round.

Claire will go to camp this morning and Grant and I will pack, clean up the house a bit and hang out until she gets home at 2:30. Then, I am taking both my babies to get some icecream. I plan on making  dinner of Grant's choice tonight since he will not get to eat anything after midnight. He HATES that part!

Wish us luck tomorrow! Hopefully his numbers are okay and we can proceed this time. I won't be able to update this until tomorrow night.
