The Boy needed blood and platelets today. Not unexpected. And, in an intelligent move, they split the blood unit so that in case he needed more of it, he could get it on Thursday.
I was going to bring him in Thursday afternoon, but it would actually be smarter to come first thing in the morning and just get more blood, if he needs it, and if not, someone else can have it.
The oncologist recommended that, in order to help with the walking issue, that we keep The Boy in sneakers (or his sweet Buster Brown work boots) frequently. I had always heard the opposite, that children learning to walk should be barefoot. For The Boy, however, he is bigger than most kids learning to walk and, more importantly, he needs the posture correction that shoes provide. Furthermore, the heavy shoes on his feet will help to make him stronger.
Thus, shoes it is.
Long and boring day at the treatment center. So glad that Musical Daddy did not have work and we were able to go through it together.
