We seem to have a different little boy this time! Its no lie. He is actually hooked up to the chemo in the top two pictures. He finished his second round on Friday, the 5th of June. We have learned a few ways to deal with the side effects differently, and so far, he hasn't really had any. He gets a little moody sometimes if I don't realize he's hurting, but that's normal. He had a good time at home too. Here he's washing dishes with Sister. We had all of the normal side effects last time; mouth sores, hair loss, we were told to expect toe and finger tingling, but what we got was a little boy who couldn't stand. I like being told the truth, but sometimes they like to water it down a little. I like to investigate everything, ask lots of questions, and question lots of things. The doctors really don't seem to get aggravated with me. They do have to stop and think sometimes, before they answer me. Sometimes they even change what they're doing. If you don't know something, ask someone who does. If you don't like or believe their answer, study it out until you know what is going on! That's how I am naturally. If you are not, get that way for the sake of your children and yourself. It's our job. Being in the hospital has really opened our eyes to the sad state of moms and dads. I've seen them do lots of things, maybe one day I'll humor you with some stories, but I haven't seen many of them being moms and dads! Back to little Silas Boaz! We have really enjoyed seeing the surprised look on the faces of the doctors & nurses. The medical staff in the Children's Hospital of UF have been good. We had a good pediatrician this time, Dr. Kenny. Truthfully, I don't even remember the ones from last hospital stay. All of the doctors and nurses that come in our room, or see Silas running down the hall, remark on how well he looks. As God gives us wisdom, I will continue to use it. My God Is Still On The Throne!!!
Boaz loved for us to color with him. And we would every time, just to see his face light up. When we colored he loved to scribble on it, just to tease us. Then he would look at us with that michievous look and smile his gorgeous smile.
Sometimes children say the funniest things. Other times it's soooo typical that you aren't sure weather to laugh, or cry!!!
Stonewall: "I'm gonna go to Walmart and buy an airhorn, then I'm gonna use it to wake up Sister at 6:30!" Then he laughs hysterically!!!
Timothy (7): When I grow up my house is gonna be shaped like an alligator. You'll have to go in the mouth to get in, then slide down and people will scream!"
