Monday sleepiness.

Watts is one happy guy the last couple of days. Sleepless, but happy. Last night he was awake for a couple of hours in the middle of the night for some reason (weird side effect of weekend antibiotic?). After trying for a few hours to get him to go down in his room, we groggily brought him into the middle of our bed where he started patting us on our heads, kissing us, bouncing on all fours, throwing himself on to our pillows, and giggling. Even in our exhaustion, it was hilarious. At one point he caught sight of some rays of the street light coming through the blinds of the window. He looked at the light, looked at us, looked back at the light, and said, "Wooow...woow, wow!"

In other news, his counts are very low so treatment will be delayed. We will go tomorrow to check his CBC again because his platelets are so low that he may need a transfusion. After looking back on old blog posts, I remembered that he did the exact same thing after the second round of MTX; his counts dropped, he needed some transfusions, and they took awhile to rebound. After all the craziness of the last stay, I am thankful for a little more time for his little body to recover at home.

So, on this rainy, dreary Monday, we are once again isolated in our neutropenic house, but are soaking up this happy (albeit sleepy) boy and enjoying having my mom back.
