Then Greg got to work on the projects he had slated for his spring break. He worked the first 3 days and then redid our pantry on Thursday and mulched the yard on Friday.
Tonight we met some friends at Chick-Fil-A and a lady was there doing balloon animals and painting hands and faces. James was very proud of his shark until he got in the bath and completely forgot about it! Needless to say i am glad I got a picture before bath time. Today was hard for James and Adrianne because Greg returned to work but we made it--Chick-Fil-A always works:)
Have a great week!

Today was a record clinic day even with his LP. They accessed him at am, he got his pentamidine and vincristine at 8am, and his LP around 9:30. We were home by 1pm which is really good for a day when we have a procedure. Our ENT appt. went good and confirmed that James has fluid behind both his ears. The doctor decided to do another round of antibiotics and a decongestant. We will check again in 3 weeks.
So our daily regimen consists of....
Is like Walgreens over here:)
Lucky for us, moist of the medicines will be finishing up at the same time-by the end of the weekend.
So now for the fun stuff....Today at MDA, Discovery toys was there with all their fun stuff and James was taken in. They were set up in the lobby as we were leaving and everything they sold they were giving a portion to The Children's Art Project. So in that moment we were weak and got a pop up playhouse and the kids love it!!!
Enjoy your day!!!!!

In other news, James goes to the ENT tomorrow about his ears. I didn't post this week but he had his 3rd ear infection and 3rd round of antibiotics. Please pray for wisdom of the doctor and for us as we proceed with the next step. James also has an LP on Wednesday and begins steroids. This is typically a very trying time in our house! We would appreciate your prayers for the upcoming ENT appointment and his procedure on Wednesday.
