Big Day

We are going in today for three things -- methotrexate by spinal tap, vincristine via PICC line and the dreaded PEG-Asparaginase shots in the thighs. The good news is that, since Ben will be sedated for the spinal tap, they can give him the shots while he's out. Now his question is whether they can sedate him every time he gets the shots!

Anyway, I'm going in for the spinal tap and shots, then I'll leave Ben and Nicole to get the vincristine afterwards. They used to give him the vincristine at the same time as the methotrexate, but apparently they need to watch him reaction to the shots first. David is staying home with Nicole's mom.

Thanks again to everyone for your continued support and encouragement.
