The day started at CHLA with a routine doctor appt that went pretty well. After his appt Eli went to be mevaker choleh Binyomin Chaim Ben Feigie Sarah and wished him a refua shelayma. For some unknown reason the drive home didn’t agree with Eli and he got extremely nauseous and vomited all over himself. BH as son as he got home he felt a lot better and got right back into eating his lunch. I finally had a few minutes this afternoon and got Eli what he has been waiting for since the diagnosis his own blackberry!! Yes I know he’s 7 but if that’s what’s going to make him feel secure and happy then that is what I will get him. Wow was he busy figuring it all out and sending non stop texts all afternoon.
We learned a few new things from the doctor appt today one is that hopefully this round of chemo shouldn’t “beat him up” as the last round did however there can possibly be other not fun side effects. As of today his blood counts were rising and we need that to continue so that round 4 of chemo can begin on Monday as planned.
The next few days and weeks are crucial in terms of the scheduling that all IYH should continue to stay on schedule so that Elimelech Ben Basya can continue to have some sort of normalcy and be able to be home for Purim and Pesach if all go as planned. We are davening and are very hopeful that this will be the case.
