Scheck Infirmary

The last couple of days have been relatively care free. We made a trip down to Johns Hopkins on the 26th to have Henry's blood drawn and to clear his catheter which had gotten plugged. It turned out to be uneventful and we were home by dinner time. The results of his blood counts told us that his platelet levels would keep us from starting round 3 until at least New Year's Eve. We've opted to start on Thursday, January 3rd which will give us time to spend with my brother's family visiting from Kansas and my Mom and Dad who are returning Sunday.

Yesterday, we had our own version of the hospital here at the Scheck house. Sophie had strep throat and so had to be quarantined upstairs all day away from Henry. She handled it well, watching TV, making crafts and playing video games. By the end of the day I felt like I'd been to the gym doing the Stairmaster. After 24 hours of medicine she is no longer contagious so she and Henry are playing a lot together already today.

Tonight the girls are visiting a friend overnight and Tara's mom, Jane is taking Henry for a while so Tara and I can have a dinner out. Today will be spent running errands and just being together.

I hope you enjoyed your dinner out!
Glad Sophie is doing better!

Happy New Year. Glad you can stay home a few more days and enjoy the New Years Holiday together!

Here's to a fun night out.
I think Granya and Gene can be trusted to handle the gals. Have fun
