Still doing great

Ben started another round of chemo yesterday. We had a long day at the hospital (over 8 hours) but Ben did great. He received a lot of attention from the nurses because he decided to use gel on his hair and had a very cute spiked look. He even had someone offer to be his girlfriend - but he said she would have to wait until he was 15.

Today was another day of chemo - but much shorter. Our visit was only about 2 1/2 hours. Our infusion center visit was made much easier because of a wonderful volunteer who kept us company and played Battleship with Ben. She is a 16 year old girl who was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 6 1/2 so she totally understands everything Ben is going through. She was very sweet. Ben didn't want to ask her any questions, but he did spend a lot of time trying to impress her!

Ben is completely wiped out from the drugs and is now taking a nap before we go pick up David from camp. It sure is nice that all is calm once again!
