Overall Sky is just looking better. His bili is going down so he isnt as yellow, his eyes dont look all sunken and hollow like they were and he just doesnt look as deathly sick as he was. He was even up in his wheelchair for two and a half hours today playing and interacting with the nurse and speech therapist. It was such a happy moment for me to watch that and listen to him talk and laugh, and to hear him do his abc's and count. He even played bingo, it just so nice to see that instead of watching him lay in bed day after day just staring off into space and not responding to anyone or anything. At one point he didnt even cry when something hurt or when they were going to do something that he didnt like, he just learned that crying isnt going to stop anything. Thats so sad that he had to learn that. Now he is aware and asking the nurses what they are doing and why they are doing it, and if he doesnt like it he will tell them. He even says please and thank you again, he was always so polite. I love seeing his little personality come back. Hopefully up on the floor it will come back even more. I just want him to be happy again. I want him to be able to stand and walk and play, maybe even go get some sunshine outside or get a breath of fresh air. Its just been too long since he has done any of that. Im hopeful that things will start improving so he can get to that point and be a "normal" cancer kid and do his chemo stuff from home. I mean what cancer kids have to go through is NEVER normal, but I would sure like to be able to do it from home. Never in my life would I have ever thought that coming in once a week for chemo would sound "nice" Its just so crazy the way our life has changed so much. Everyday that Sky is here is just a blessing, Im so grateful for his sweet little spirit. I cant wait for the day when he is happy and healthy again and he can look back at this and say "I did it, I beat the odds and made it!" For now, up to the fourth floor we go and I couldnt be happier.
Skyler playing bingo with one of our favorite nurses, Crystal. Love her!
