April 26, 2013

Casey was poked with all kinds of needles today.  He had another bone marrow done and he some spinal fluid removed and chemo shot into his spine.  This clinical trial is from Germany, so his fluids need to be sent to the lab in Germany.  We got back to the hotel pretty early today (around 4:00 p.m.) so Casey laid flat until 6:00 and then we walked to a Vietnamese restaurant for dinner.  You don't want to be too active after a spinal tap, it can cause severe headaches.  Casey is loving watching the draft.  I really don't know enough about it to get too excited.  We rode the elevator with someone from York, PA today, last week we met someone from Indonesia.  Everyone has a story, and is looking for the best care available.  It is hard being so far away from home, but we hope they will find the cure for Casey's leukemia.  He has a case of stubborn PA dutch cancer.
Tomorrow we are going to be tourists.  We are thinking of going to San Antonio and then meeting up with Charlie and Melissa tomorrow evening.
Thank you to our neighbor, Jess Diirner for letting my girls, Annie and Bowie out to go to the bathroom in the middle of the day. And of course to Stevie for taking Casey's baby girl, Caroline.  All the puppies are well taken care of, but we sure do miss them.
