He was so sad and in so much pain here. He had huge crocodile tears.
This was after that final big dose of pain medicine when he was actually able to calm down. He didn't want his usual slushy and crackers, he wanted a candy cane. You can see that there are steri strips on his neck where they made an incision and some on his chest right where they placed the port. That square bandage is from where they took out his line and its already saturated in blood. They had to place a bigger bandage over it but it still kept bleeding through that. It finally stopped bleeding all the way when we got home from dinner.
This is when they took him to the other part of the unit to recover.
Finally ready to go home, but still not feeling great. The stuffed animal is a kangaroo that he got from a sweet friend from Australia. The reason he brought it with him is because it has boxing gloves on and he said it could punch all the bad guys away and his cancer. We also made each other little paper hearts that said I love you and I'm here with you and gave them to each other to bring with us. He put his in his kangaroos pouch and I kept mine in my pocket. That way when they had to take him back to give him the sleepy medicine he could hug his kangaroo and pretend it was me giving him a hug. He told me that when he was screaming for me to come and I didn't he hugged his kangaroo and it helped a little.
Thank you so much for all the prayers. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
