Blessings in Disguise

Record-timing at Texas Children's Hospital today... out in 4 hours.  Whawhooo!  :)  That's because Caleb's blood counts are still way too low to begin his next strong regimen of chemotherapy.  At any other time, we might be concerned his treatment plan has to be postponed for several weeks, however... it just happens to be THANKSGIVING this week.  That means, we are going to rejoice in having our energetic little Kindergartner back!  Our Cal still has a spring in his step... he's running & playing & even arguing again with his brother (believe it or not, that's music to our ears!)   :)
I had a feeling it was going to be a good day, when it started with a surprise visit from a volunteer & dancing Leonardo the Lion.
Fun, soft lion that can really bust some moves!  :)
"Child Life" came in to assist with Caleb's procedure, to access the port in his chest.  His specialist was so loving, kind and distracting, that NO TEARS were shed today. 
Praise God for a relaxed day, just chillin' with his pal, Courage...
Unfortunately, Caleb's tonsils are swollen, so we're waiting for the tests to come back to let us know if he has an infection.  We pray for a clean bill of health.  So far, it's looking very positive that we're going to have a fantastic start to the holidays!
