I love this video cause it was hillarious. He sits and stands and moves and crawls all over the place and he was just laying there doing this ball toy. It cracked me up! I think that we took this video at like 4:30 in the afternoon. All my kids are in their pajamas. Nice huh! The girls came home from school and showered then put their pj's on cause we didn't go anywhere else!
Aiden has found that the piano makes one of his favorite things! Music! He loves it. As you will be able to see from the video that I uploaded, He plays the song and then you have to turn the page cause he is done with that song. We did this a lot while we were in quarantine. And yes we did disinfect the piano keys.

This is our bed. Air mattress on the floor. The first night was bad cause everytime we moved it squeaked. That added to the fact that there were vital checks every other second and meds administered through the night it was rough. The second night we put a blanket on the floor and due to exhaustion and our awesome nurse (Jami) who was super quiet when she came in an really on top of things (no beeping alarms) we got much better sleep. It has been pretty comfortable. We were told that for the next stay we should see if they can hook us up with one of the big rooms. We will see what we can do. In the morning we put the air mattress against the wall so it is out of the way. Brent really likes it here cause we keep the room at freezing - at night I have a sheet, fuzzy blanket and hospital (warmed) blanket. Brent sleeps with just a sheet. AAAHHHH the story of our life.

Ok so I thought I would start today's blog with a video of Aiden playing. He did really well today in the beginning. They are giving him Ativan for stomach aches and Oxycodone for pain on a schedule and it has really helped him. Obviously you can see that the steriods make him a little CRAZY :) or maybe they are just bringing out his true nature.

Kaitlin got to go fishing because the last attempt didn't work out because of micro burst wind. For her birthday she wanted to go fishing at the place with the llamas. So that is where she went. She caught 12 fish in the hour time allowance she had.
This fish was super slimy. It slipped right out of her hands for the picture.
This one was more cooperative and photogenic ;)
Now she is asking to go to Angie's for a treat.....So off we go.
But before we go Kaitlin wanted to type her very own message to her Mom, Dad and brother Aiden....
can you smell my feet from here? They stink! Bad Bad. Tell daddy that when he comes home he has a fishing date with me. Give Aiden a big hug and kiss for me.
After a really long 5 hours the chemo is done and Aiden calmed down a little. We even brought out the big guns "coke" to try to make him feel better but he really wasn't interested. He finally took a short nap and that seemed to help calm his down a little.
Enough so that we could enjoy some yogurt! He is really loving the vanilla thick and creamy yogurt by yoplait.
