Today was a warm and sunny day. Way too beautiful to be confined to a hospital room! Aunt Cheryl and cousin Ashley came to visit and brought Casey pizza, since he will be missing pizza night tonight. When they left Casey walked out with them and enjoyed a little time outside. I take the dogs for a walk....he takes his chemo for a walk. When we came back inside, my parents were on the first floor of the hospital. They came upstairs and to find Casey had broken out! This hospital is big with plenty of places to wander. Yesterday his spinal was postponed (they held his food and drink all day), and he was ready to eat, so Casey took his chemo out to lunch. We wheeled his IV stand downstairs to the cafeteria and he ate sitting at a table instead of in his bed. He has grown very used to having tubes coming out of his chest. Casey is prepping for this transplant, like he did for a big race. I guess you could say he is in a taper. Let's hope he hits his taper right. He is taking it like a true champion!
