This week we have been able to bring Kaden out of the hospital during the day. This has given us all a well deserved break and a bit of freedom from being stuck in the hospital isolation room. It has been so good to be able to relax and feel like a ‘normal’ family. As Kadens antibiotics was stopped today, they even let Kaden stay out till 8pm, so we were able to enjoy dinner together. One thing this journey has taught us is that its the simple things in life that are the most important and enjoyable 🙂
During the week, the boys have spent a lot of quality time together playing the xbox and watching the new tv series we found for them. We are hoping that next week, with the doctors approval, we’ll be able to start taking the boys out to the local park or even a little bit of site seeing. 🙂
Kaden has been getting stronger and stronger, today we were able to see a weight gain on the scales from all the fantastic eating that Kaden has been doing. Not only are we seeing an improvement on the scales but Kaden is also displaying strength in his legs and upper body and is enjoying riding the bike around the hospital and across to the apartment.
Yesterday we were given the go ahead for Kaden to start the next round of chemo. This round will run for a total of 5 consecutive days. We have arranged for the chemo to take place in the mornings allowing Kaden to continue to leave the hospital during the day.
We have not yet been given any indication on when we will be able to return home. There is still some tweaking to be done with Kaden’s medications and also to ensure that Kaden is handling this round of chemo ok.
Thank you to everyone who has responded to our request for assistance in finding Kaden some new tv shows to watch 🙂
We hope you all have a fabulous weekend 🙂
