Sorry I haven't updated for a week. I've been worn out. Cohen is doing great. He isn't so grumpy and he hasn't thrown up at all. He definitely handles the chemotherapy really well.
They are going to collect his stem cells really soon. We have been going to the hospital everyday (since Wednesday the 26th) for them to monitor his stem cells. They are thinking they will do the collection on Monday. He will have to get a catheter in his groin and stay pretty still during the collection. It could take anywhere from 1 to 5 days. He'll be in the hospital and probably be sedated the whole time.
I just wanted to tell everyone that I had the best Christmas ever. Kelsi was so happy and very sweet the whole day. Cohen was good until about 11:00 in the morning. He was grumpy the rest of the day; probably overwhelmed by all of the excitement. Chris and I had a nice relaxing day just watching the kids play with their toys. It was nice because we didn't have to think about anything medical with either of the kids. We were all just together the whole day. That doesn't happen that often. The best gift I received was from my sister-in-law Erin. She decorated the letters of faith with Cohen's picture. I will post a picture of it soon. It was very thoughtful.
Well, thank you so so much for all of your thoughts and prayers.
