Port-a-cath, bone marrow test and spinal tap oh my!
So today was eventful to say the absolute least.
Jimmy and Kayla both had surgeries today. It's hard enough when either your child or your spouse has surgery. Imagine having them both go at the same time and you can't be there for one.
So my grandma went with Jimmy and I stayed with Kayla. She has a spinal tap, bone marrow taken out and had her chemo.
Jimmy got his port a cath put in as well. So now he has matching scars! One on each side. He is very sore and has to sleep elevated.
Kayla has been off of her steroids for 3 days now and I can already see a difference in her mood and her eating. She is laughing and making jokes now.
Jimmy starts chemo tomorrow and he has already asked me to reschedule it. He is anticipating being sick and not feeling well.
