Day +8 has been a bit of a pain in the neck.  Casey's mucositis has moved into his throat.  He has a rinse to swish in his mouth to help alleviate the pain, but he doesn't swallow it, so it is no good on his throat.  They give him shots of pain medication to help him cope.  I was trying to call him today, but he wouldn't answer because he was knocked out from the pain medication.  I called in the troops to find out what was going on.   I called Stevie and Big Bob, but they hadn't seen him yet, I called Aunt Debbie.  She left her basement lab and went to his room on the 6th floor and reported in to me.  Thank goodness for Aunt Debbie.  Casey was annoyed with me, and I bet it won't be the last time.  He just doesn't understand when mommy mode kicks into high gear.  Casey got infused with some platelets today too, so he has been busy.
I got a request for Casey's address, so here it is
 Penn State Hershey Medical Center
Casey Coble, Room 6125
500 University Drive
Hershey, PA  17033
Thank you for your continued support.

  1. Ouch that must really be annoying and painful. Sounds like he needs some more ice cream to soothe that throat, yummy!!!! Hang in there it is going to only get better, Casey!!! Thanks for the address, Peggy. Yes, kids won't get the mommy mode until they are parents themselves, we didn't get it either, take care!!!
