Well, Sammy is now back from the ER and is dosed up with Tamiflu.  His chest Xray and cultures are all clear so far and the swab showed flu despite him having the flu shot this year.  He's the only one in our family who has had it and he's the one with flu...bugger!  I am now about to give him his Mercaptopurine and Neurontin and settle him into bed for an early wake-up to get down to CHAM.  There he will get more antibiotics, chemo and the doctors will check him over themselves.  We are asking our friends if they can host New Year's Eve as we can't....awful to do this at the last minute to them...so sorry everyone.  I guess I was being over optimistic about how Sammy has been lately...but I find being positive helps us all stay sane.  Even now I am seeing this as Sammy having Flu...with some precautions thrown in as needed, rather than his cancer being the evil asshole ruining our lives.  Flu happens...I'll deal with it!


  1. Glad it's nothing more serious. Keep smiling if you can...you are going so well.

  2. Thanks for finding my blog and following! My heart goes out to you and your family. My two sons have austism. I wrote something about being their mother that is going to be published in A Cup of Comfort for Christian Women. If you would like to read it, email me and I will send you my essay. Also, here is a link to something I wrote about difficult times. http://10stepstofindingyourhappyplace.blogspot.com/2010/08/mary-was-real-mother.html

    Your little Sammy looks like a trooper. I can tell he is a sweetie! Best wishes for the new year!

  3. You posts are inspiring to me, both as a person and as a writer. I saw my sister Kerry is one of your followers!? Small world....
    God Bless your family and little Sammy. <3
