Ok ...

Adam has been ok today. A little sore, but he's eaten well and hasn't had any temperatures. This morning he was up and out of bed early to play with Jake, then downstairs to play with Jess, then back upstairs to play with Jake again. He's not done much of anything except laze around in bed and watch TV since mid-morning, when Jake & Jess left to spend the night at my sister's house, but that's not such a bad thing.

We have our confirmed itinerary for next week. Appointment with our US oncologist on Tuesday, bone marrows on Wednesday, PET/CT on Thursday, Adam's 9th birthday on Friday. We don't know how long we'll be in America for this time; to prove the point, we didn't even bother booking a return flight home.

As every day is important and precious we moved our flight out back to Monday, so we get an extra 24 hours at home; meaning Adam, Jake and Jess get to spend Sunday together. Whilst part of me wants to put Adam on a plane tomorrow in order to ensure we get him out to America, we do have to weigh everything up carefully. It won't come as any surprise to hear that Adam would much prefer another day at home playing with Jake & Jess, than a day stuck in Grand Rapids with just me and Alison before the hospital visits start.
