Casey was at the Cancer Center yesterday to get checked and to get a blood tranfusion. He spoke to his doctor about how things are going for the transplant. They still have not found anyone who is a good match, but they are still looking. He is also considering doing what they call a mini transplant, which is not as effective at curing the leukemia, but would be a lot safer than a transplant that is not compatible. I suppose Casey is an oddity of nature. I am enjoying spending time with Casey. When he was younger, and I drove them into swim practice every night, I always felt lucky to have that time in the car with him and no distractions (except for Matt Horning for a couple of years! Those two were always entertaining together). Now when he is tied up to chemo or at home, I feel as though I am getting to spend some quality time with him and getting to know him all over again. I really like the kid! The thing I most admire is the way he always puts other people first. He may feel really sick, but he doesn't want to burden you with his problems. There are times through this where I get crabby, and then I have to think I have nothing to complain about. He was real pale and I could tell he was feeling bad on Thursday night, the only thing he said was that he was tired. He doesn't want anyone to feel sorry for him. I am so proud of my boy and the way he is handling all of this!
