Rock and Roll

I took Thomas to Sunday School this week, and I had to warn the teacher that Thomas was recovering from surgery and a little off balance, so he needed to be kept an eye on if he tried to walk.

When I got back an hour or so later, the sweet teacher, an older man, looked whipped. "He's quite a handful! There's no slowing that guy down!" he panted.

It's true. Thomas has been feeling more a little like himself. He insisted on visiting our neighbors today, and waved hello and goodbye and "talked" to them and their pets.

It's nice to see; this weekend he started babbling and saying words and singing for the first time since surgery. Of course, his "no" (a full-body side-to-side negative) was the first to return.

We're trying to enjoy the progress without thinking ahead to chemo. That'll start sometime in the next week, we think.

I don't know how it will be this time. Last time, it meant that every time we were home for 3 - 14 days, we went in the emergency room and came out a couple weeks later. It's not supposed to be like that this time, but the dread is a boulder that keeps rolling around my house.

Great news Sarah I am glad to see he is doing well. Your dad and I have both been sick with sinus/ear infections but are getting better. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

This is the longest I have been away from Thomas since all this began. I am having withdrawal pangs!!! That, and sporatic internet access, make me miss him even more! Hope all went well with dr. appt. this week. I love you guys and should be home some time on Sunday (if not sooner). I'm available to babysit MONDAY nite!!! Kiss each other for me!

Good to hear Thomas is feeling better. You can't keep a good boy down. Fingers crossed for chemo. I hope it is not an immunity heavy one.
