Hey Logan watchers,
today logan began his treatment (although he would probably have preferred being on the lake!) Our day got started at 6am (that's in the morning for you teenagers!) with truckloads of fluids. Apparently this toxic stuff is such heavy duty S### that it can make you go into kidney failure as the meany cancer cells collapse at a great rate of knots and clog them up! So between you and me (and the rest of the world) the boy has been peeing like a trouper! Anyhow, he had chemo at about 10am (a low dose to get him used to it) and then at 11.30 came the fun lumber puncture... if you are an adrenaline junkie you should try this cause it's bloody scary!! Even had to bring in the backup (Daddy) for moral support. Then guess what happened? My amazing boy got this equally amazing doctor who was so gentle that he only had a small amount of pain. Spinal fluid is totally freaky to look at. His was clear (apparently that's good!). They also inserted a couple of shots of chemo (of something I couldn't pronounce or spell). That took us up to about 11.45 and as Logan would say... a totally uneventful day really. Then Logan took it all in his stride and spent the rest of the day sleeping. He woke for his meals and then dozed again. All in all, a great first day.
