We had been told that we should anticipate a range of side effects following chemotherapy, and given how well Soren fared during his stay in the hospital we were hopeful that he’d duck them. Unfortunately, these time-tested drugs do work as promised, making him one uncomfortable boy for a few days. But with great care from his team and his own strength, Soren’s white blood cell counts rebounded exponentially (so quickly that we can stop some of our medicines early), and we were able to come home tonight!
We broke up the malaise of meds and poor sleeping with some great games and competitive paper-airplane-flying. I was happy that Soren’s play made other boys and girls who couldn’t be so mobile smile.
The new cards, thoughts and gifts at home upon our return leave us nearly speechless. Thank you!
