Day 5 of radiation today and Joey is going strong. We went on our morning mission in the minivan with the Bond music playing. Joey was jamming in the back seat and said to me, "Hey Mom! Do you think God is dancing right now?" I know I am everyday he looks this good. Following our morning zap, we went to the clinic for a check of his counts. He is holding platelets longer than ever. Wednesday will be 2 weeks without a transfusion. I was surprised that he didn't need it today. I hate to admit that because I have been praying that would be the case---I still have some weakness of faith--I pray for that too. Mostly, I just pray...Certainly, today, I can see the fruit of that prayer. Joey looks great. I expected him to be dragging around after a week of radiation combined with all the covert action of last evening. But, he is doing just fine. He and I are hanging out today following our appointments. Gina goes back to swimming tonight, so we will once again be a family divided. It is so nice, though, that it is just for an evening. Is that how the rest of you live? Til next time....
