Last day of steroids for the month

Ben is finally feeling pretty good. It was a tough weekend emotionally as the steroids really took their toll on Ben this month. We are so happy that he gets the last dose of the month tonight. Of course, it didn't help that we found out that we may not be able to get the puppy we have been wanting to get and also the fact that one of our fish died - but everything just seems to be multiplied when he is on steroids. He has all kinds of emotions that he doesn't understand - and unfortunately it is usually sadness and anger that predominate during these few days. Thank goodness it is only for 5 days a month!!

He was able to go to school. I was worried that it would be too overwhelming for him but he always seems to do well there. I spoke with his teachers before school started to let them know what was going on and that I could be at the school in 5 minutes if he needed me. His teacher was the one who put the boys in the car at the end of the day and she said he had a great day!

Today is Family Night which means the boys do not have any homework. We had fun playing baseball in the back yard (and the boys beat me badly) and doing some fun science experiments. I am letting them play 20 minutes of Playstation and then they are going to help me make dinner. What a nice day!
