Surgery #2

The Boy's second surgery is scheduled for sometime Thursday of next week. He'll be admitted sometime Wednesday. We'll be getting more information soon as to when that will be.

The oncologist speculates a 3 day recovery from the surgery. That sounds about right--last time The Boy had the surgery, also on a Thursday, he had his first nursing on Friday evening and his first real meal Saturday evening. He was bouncing around by Sunday.

He had his chemo this week, just Vincristine, but will wait an additional week to have the "week 9" treatment of Vincristine and Doxorubicin. You know, the red diaper solution.

Starts to get complicated because school starts next week but we'll work it out and whatever The Boy needs, that's what we'll do.
