It's been a fun week of distractions for Caleb. Jesus is the reason for the season, & that has brought a lot of joy to our family. You could almost call Cal's chemo experience "fun" on Monday! Texas Children's Cancer Center really "decked the halls" with colorful Christmas decorations, inside & out.
|Seems less daunting to a child to go get "needle sticks", with such an inviting atmosphere.|
Plus, Cal's sweet high-tech nurse got Christmas tunes rockin' with Pandora on her cell. His Oncologist was dressed in green & red with a flashing Christmas tree necklace. Other medical workers wore reindeer antlers!
|"Breathing" his medications went well, to avoid swallowing more pills.|
|Acting crazy before chemo.|
|One of Cal's nurses even got on the floor with him, when she noticed that is where he was most comfortable. |
|The love & dedication of these nurses is amazing. It's incredible to witness how they treat all of the children.|
|Wait - WHO is at our door???? :)|
|(A huge thanks to the Pellegrino fam for making this happen & the Greens for informing us about it.)|
It was a special occasion that will remain in our thoughts for an eternity. They're still talking about it! :)
We hope you & yours are enjoying every second of this magical season. I just realized this is the first time since I was 18 years old that I didn't send Christmas cards. We'll have to really make up for that next year! :) We are so ready for 2014!
