Josh finally got out of the ER and into a private room around 4:30 this evening! He said his room is blue and has a bunch of the characters from Finding Nemo on the walls. He also said there are stickers all over his bed and there's a Mickey Mouse computer in his room! (It doesn't work though! :( ) At least it gives him something interesting to look at and it's a lot better than plain, boring, white walls!
All day they've been giving him blood and IV antibiotics. They'll continue to give him blood until the count is high enough. He's having a hard time eating much because he has painful sores all over his mouth. Mom told me the name of the infection but it was a pretty long name and I can't remember what it was. They say it's an infection that's common for patients to get after chemo, same with the sores in his mouth. There hasn't been anymore talk about when he gets to come home.
Mom spent the day up there with him and will be spending the night at Pam Anderson's house. (Pam is one of her co-workers who lives in Tucson and commutes to Sierra Vista.) Thank you Pam for offering your house! We feel better that she won't be driving home in the dark by herself.
Please continue to pray for a speedy recovery and that he'll be home for Christmas!
