Chemo Round 6 & Transplant, Family, Tests, on Wednesday, February 28. 2007 at
Sounds like Asher will not be allowed to go to transplant with his current snotty nose / cold situation, which makes sense, but we'll know more tomorrow. They are going to swab him tomorrow - guess they swab all kids before they go to transplant - he'll hate that. If we're delayed, most likely 7 days, so admit 3/11 instead of 3/4.
Alexa got Asher's cold Sunday night and hasn't been eating much at all and has a hard time breathing. Aubree is still having really crappy diapers and teething and being fussy about bottles (whether they are formula or orange (artificial fruit) pedialite) and food. BRAT (bananas rice applesauce and toast) diet is great if your child eats that stuff, Aubree isn't wanting to. I was pretty worried about her today and if tomorrow isn't better she's off to a doctor....such a bad time for our family to be sick
I guess the delay would give me an extra 6 days to fill out all the neurodevelopment forms/paperwork/questions. Just surprises me I got this so late and got so little time to do any of it.

Chemo Round 6 & Transplant, Tests, on Wednesday, February 28. 2007 at
Asher seemed pretty happy to be going to the dentist when I got into the car to drive him there. Shortly after taking off, he fell asleep and slept the entire way there. It took an hour to get there and I had to wake Asher up after I parked in the parking lot.
Asher was NOT happy to be at the dentist anymore. He did walk into the dentist, but didn't want anything to do with any of the people there. He clutched me tight and we were immediately led into our own treatment room.
Shortly the dentist came in and Asher started to cry because he didn't want anything to do with him. It took a few minutes, but we eventually laid Asher's head down so that the dentist could check each of his teeth for cavities. He counted to make sure Asher had all of his teeth and he gently probed them with his pick to make sure there were no soft centers.
Once he was done checking for cavities, we went out and Asher did bite x-rays to make sure that there were no infections between his teeth nor were there any absesses.
All turned out great and Asher got to pick two prizes to take home. Vampire Teeth and a sticky eyeball.
