The Longer Term

We had a preliminary conversation with Dr. Hurvitz, our oncologist, about Ben's future after we leave the hospital. He won't be able to go back to school before the Summer, but chances are very good that he can return to school in the Fall. Because his defenses against infection are weakened, he can't be exposed to all of the germs in a classroom right now. If he gets sick after leaving the hospital, we have to bring him back.

So we can count another blessing -- the timing was pretty good.
