The Shortest Post Ever

Halloween evening. We stole the opportunity to go trick-or-treating despite having to return to hospital directly afterwards. Gavin learned how to say “Trick or treat!” and practically chanted “Candy, candy!” as we went around to a few neighbours’ houses. When we got home he immediately pulled a pack of Smarties out of his bucket and passed them to me saying, “candy, try!” Okay, then. He enjoyed those Smarties more than any child has ever enjoyed his Halloween treats.

He did not kick up a fuss about going back to hospital at all and thoroughly enjoyed showing off his Elephant costume to the nurses on the unit.

As of today, we officially finished round 2 of his high-dose chemo. ┬áHe hasn’t started feeling poorly yet, that won’t come for a few days yet. Transplant is on Thursday, tomorrow is our day off, and if he is as energetic as he was today, we’ll enjoy it.

Maybe not the shortest post ever. Pretty close.

    All three of you looked amazing in your costumes. Can’t believe you ALL managed to dress up and look so magnificent. Certainly put us to shame with no adult costumes – well done! Thanks for coming over to trick or treat. That was the highlight of our evening. ~ J

    That’s OK. (the short post) short and sweet. I’m sending a special super-vibe your way. You should feel a little tingle when you get it. Love you all.
