Happy Valentine's Day! This one was sure special for me. First of all because I got to spend it with the love of my life, and second he made my day by waking up to beautiful long stemmed roses and a scooby doo game. What a sweetheart!
And what did I give him for Valentines Day?......Oh just a couple of lovely shots of chemo in the legs. (But not by choice) Before that though I had his Valentines waiting for him when he woke up.
One of the only things he will eat besides Cutler's pasta is popcorn, so I got him an old fashioned popcorn maker like you see in the movie theaters. Now we can have movie night the right way.
Then we were off to clinic. They didnt draw any labs today so Im not sure what his counts are but Im assuming they are still pretty good because they were high on Thursday. He did get the PEG shots in both legs though. He was so brave up until two people in blue chemo gowns came up to him both carrying needles in their hands. He then started kicking and screaming bloody murder, poor thing. They were able to get it done pretty quick though and he was able to settle down really quickly when they were done. One great thing that happened today was that he was able to walk all the way from one room back to the treatment room with just holding one of my hands. He did amazing and about half way through he was hardly putting any weight on my hand. One thing about Skyler is that if he puts in his mind that he is going to do something he DOES it. I could just see the determination in his eyes and hear it in his little grunts. It was so cute. Im so proud of him. When he were done Grandma Kathy met us to give Skyler a valentine. Skyler told her that he wanted to give me flowers, so she got him flowers to give to me also. I definitely got spoiled today.
Everytime Skyler gets a balloon he always tells me he wants to send it up to daddy in heaven, so Grandma Kathy brought some balloons so he could send them up to daddy for Valentines.
When we got home we made some yummy cookies. Skyler LOVES to cook (definitely didnt get that from me) He did everything all by himself, I just told him what to put in and he did it all. He even frosted and decorated them all my himself. Didnt they turn out great? Good job Sky!
After that we had his cousins come over for a little Valentines party. We had pizza and played games. I must admit, it was pretty hard for me at first just because it has been so long since he has been around kids but it was so worth it. He was laughing and smiling the whole time. He had a blast. It made my heart so happy seeing how happy he was. It has been way too long since he has been able to just be a kid and have fun. His counts are going to start dropping though with this chemo so he wont be able to have anyone over, so Im just grateful that they were high enough today so he could have a fun Valentines at home. He sure deserves it.
