Several Badgers football players came by to say hi to the kids here at the Children’s Hospital today, and Wes and I got our picture taken with them. It was a good day.
We met with the Nurse Case Manager, all of the residents on rounds, Genetics, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Health Psychology, Audiology, Oncology, and had labs run. And somehow we fit in a ton of play time. Wes has been ridiculously happy the whole time we have been here, even with having to not eat for 7+ hours on Tuesday and Thursday. But when the OT/PT people brought a mat in so he could crawl and play, wow, did his face light up! He hardly stopped from 2 – 9pm!
Just since Monday he has been pulling himself up to a standing position, and since yesterday he is able to get himself into a sitting position from crawling.
Some of the best memories from today were of Jenny helping Wes dance. She sang him the entire “Baby Got Back” song (changing the key line to “makes me so happy”), and “Shake Your Groove Thing”. That boy loves to dance!
We received a lovely visit from Theresa with nourishment to get us through this long night.
Wes started his chemo at 10pm tonight.
Seems like there should have been fireworks or something when the first med went in. I did chant “go Wes”.
