Another fantastic day!

Matt was able to go to school today. It felt really normal because it was a 1/2 day for everyone, so he stayed with his class and took the bus home (rather than me picking him up at noon). He has been energetic and has done homework the past couple of days. It's nice to see him re-emerging. The memory issues are still significant, but my boy is still there.

It's amazing to watch the changes from week to week. Last Thursday Matt was so sick! He just wandered around the house with his throw-up bucket looking awful! Now, he's happy and comfortable, not too nauseated (although his food preferances and cravings are very different than they were pre-chemo), and he was even able to go with Diana and the younger boys to the 'fun park'. They are there right now. It has a big 'soft play' area, video games, bowling, etc... He was really excited and anxious to go with them. I was thrilled to let him!

Now, though, I am going to go take a nap!

Good for you, Alli! I'm so glad Matthew is feeling good. I'm also glad that that your doc is looking into another opinion. Never hurts! I think that the more info, the better! Thanks for your blog!
