WE'RE HOME

Sorry I didn't post anything last night; I was wiped out. Cohen is still really grumpy. He'll be happy for a little bit but when he gets grumpy nothing can calm him down. Poor guy; he is going through so much right now.
He didn't have to go home on iv fluids this time. He is still eating pretty well. Scrambled eggs are now a favorite. I just need to put in a lot of butter and milk to pack in the calories. I'm not sure how much weight he's lost because they weigh him in kilograms. I'm guessing at least 2lbs. Not too much because they aren't worried about it yet.
Cohen will have 3 tests done in 2-3 weeks (right before the next round of chemo) to check if the chemotherapy is working. He will have a bone scan, MIBG, and CT scan (all on different days.) All of the same ones he's had before. I hope the chemotherapy is working. Then they can schedule surgery and stay on the same plan. Hopefully the bone scan, the test that showed the tumor in his skull and cheek, will show no sign of the tumor there. Along with the other two scans. That way they'll have a better idea of where he's at.
The next round of chemo is scheduled for December 18th for 5 days (6 days total stay.) Keep your fingers crossed that his white blood cells come up on time and that everything goes as expected so we don't have to stay during Christmas.
Thank you for your prayers.
