Halfway

Henry continues to sail through radiation. His treatments are brief, and by 10 am he's up and ready to go. In a strange sense, we're secretly enjoying this time. There are no responsibilities for us at St. Casimir's, it's a bit of a forced vacation. So we spend our afternoons finding various activities to interest and occupy Henry. As long as he's feeling well, things are so much easier.

His counts have rebounded nicely, but we haven't received word on when they will resume the spinal radiation. We were told it would be by the end of the week.

Today is treatment number 13. We anticipate between 25 and 28 treatments, so we're at (ar about) the halfway point. We're eager to keep moving on.

13 is a very lucky number! Good luck..! Eat some ice cream - it's the perfect day for it. Not too hot for it to drip everywhere, not too cold.
We're with you all the way!
Go Henry go!

We continue to be so proud of you Henry! Enjoy your time with mom and dad finding neat things to do in Baltimore. Have you found any cool fire stations to visit yet? Take care.
