Happy Easter

Today is day 3 of chemo. He is handling the higher doses of chemo pretty well. He's only thrown up once. He is soooo grumpy though. He'll scream and cry for something, be happy for a minute, then do it again. He is so tired but refuses to take naps. He does have his really cute moments though. When he is ready for a nap he wants to cuddle with me and have me nap with him. He started giving himself his own medicine and giving the nurses his arm and finger for vitals. At least he cooperates that way.
Since he will be more immunosuppressed than he has ever been before we have to be so clean and careful. We have to put small amounts of candy or other dry food in baggies, because he can only have food exposed to air for 45 minutes. So this was definitely a harder Easter to prepare for. I had to separate all of the candy in to little bags and I stuffed some of the bagged candy in eggs for the kids to find. I also had to wipe down everything and put they're easter baskets in the dryer (the dryer will kill any germs on cloth or stuffed animals.) It took a lot longer than I expected. I thought for sure Kelsi was going to say something because it does look really silly but she hasn't said a thing. They are enjoying the toys and candy. Hopefully that will help make Cohen's day a little better.

I'm glad you still got to do Easter baskets for the kids! Sounds like a lot of work, but so worth it to create the happy holiday memories. :) I'd like to come visit again, but I'm worried about getting Cohen sick. I've had a bit of a sore throat this past week. Let me know when he's feeling a little better and if I'm feeling super healthy I'll stop by. :) My love and prayers to you all!!!
