We got home at around 2 o'clock today. Chemo started at 11, ended at 12, had hydration until 1, then deaccessed and loaded in the car. With a quick stop at CVS to drop off The Boy's new prescriptions, we got home promptly.

The Boy ate a whole lot of chicken and broccoli at 12:30 for lunch, then ate a couple of rice cakes and a whole lot of watermelon when we got home. That was significant, because he really hadn't eaten any meals for several days. Not unusual, because of the chemo; but it was still nice to see him eat.

The entire family then napped from 4 until almost 7! I know that The Boy and I were really exhausted, so Mommy took Younger Bro inside at 5:30 and let us sleep. We woke up to a wonderful dinner of steak and noodles, which The Boy ripped into with enthusiasm. True, he puked up some of the noodles, but that was because some cookie got caught in his throat.

How is he? Okay. Uncomfortable. His blood pressures are mysteriously high today, something that we hope will work itself through. Not sure if it will, but I've been wrong before. It's 11pm and a diaper hell night, and he's just settling down.

Hopefully, the rain will hold off a little bit tomorrow so that we can spend some time outside. The Boy needs to work his strength back up.
