The Gan-man (yes we call him that a lot) made it home today.
Carver was so happy to see him. Here is a picture of the two of them….
Bahahaha…I love Gannon’s expression. Carver just adores him. So many people complain that kids react when a new sibling comes home. For the most part, Carver has been his same goofy self.
Gannon is a changed man with the formula. I can’t believe the difference. We do notice that he seems hungry more often though.
Thanks to everyone who wrote suggestions, advice and comments concerning Gannon, Kalissa and his not tolerating breast milk. We have read through so many of them and plan to read and go through them more thoroughly now that Gannon is doing better. What a scare!!
Kramer had a rough day yesterday. We’ve learned that day two after chemo is a rough day. He initially felt good when he woke up but by 7:30am, he was feeling worse and worse. Before long he was in the chair and asking about nausea meds. He called off going to work and spent most of the morning in the chair. He ate a little for lunch as the doctors had told him to eat even if he feels nauseous.
A friend of ours drove him to radiation and when he got here Kramer was napping. It’s been over a week since he’s napped. Wednesday he napped every chance he had….even sleeping through supper. He woke just as the rest of us had finished then got up and ate.
A friend had stopped over with a card and she said she figured Kramer was doing good as her husband had seen him going out to work and had seen him driving. He’s doing okay….far from normal life and it’s all day by day…and actually hour by hour. He might get out to work and work for three hours but then he’s home and in the chair for 4 hours. He is so tired of being home and bored that he saves all his energy, goes out and then comes home to crash. He’s fighting hard for a little normalcy.
All in all the good of Gannon getting home outweighed the bad of Kramer not feeling the best. Today’s a new day and we’re hoping for a little less nausea.
Speaking of normalcy..I made pie. The kitchen was a mess. I had a thousand other things I should be doing but I was sick of it all and wanted to do something fun….for me that was baking pies.
These happen to be two apple pies…YUM. It’s amazing how some crappy dried up apples can turn into something good.
I’m hoping and praying some of the other things around here that are a little bit crappy will turn into other good things. I promised myself through all of this I would keep looking for the good. Happily I’ve been able to always find something…today, it was Gannon, PIE and a visit from a friend. Thanks for stopping by. It means so much to me.
