I finally remembered to bring my camera up to the hospital today. I know many of you have requested pictures so that you can visually see how he is doing.
Ezra finally agreed to wearing a mask, which has greatly improved our hospital stay. If he wears a mask he can venture out of his room, and even out of the hospital on rides.
He still has all of that beautiful hair, guess he is holding out. Dr.s told me they typically start losing their hair around 7-10 days into chemo, he is on day 22.
Here is Rowan pushing his little brother around the hospital. Ezra calls his rides “Weeeeee!”. He will ask to go weeeee and put a mask up to his face…it will break your heart, he is so sweet.
For part of Ezra’s chemotherapy he has to take steroids for 28 days. The steroids make people bloat up, so he is sporting a moon face and a Buddha belly for the time being. They also make him an irritable, fussy, ravenous beast. He screams “IZZA!!!” at us at all hours of the day. Pizza is his food of choice right now. He has taken to screaming IZZA at the staff as well, as if they can magically make a pizza appear.
Ezra has been such a great boy through all of this, he takes it for what it is. Since getting his port removed he has even been playing a little, which is so good to see.
We hope to be leaving the hospital next week , probably not till the weekend though…possibly later. Honestly, I don’t mind having him here, at least I know he is safe.
