First day of school

For those who have been following the blog, a little bit of sunshine for once!

Yesterday was Caleb's first day of school, and he looked so handsome in his uniform! Adam too had a joyous return to school this week, another handsome uniform and some beaming smiles to go with it! No matter what happens, it was worth it to see his face when I did the "school" sign.

He is doing really well, and today went to school after his lumbar puncture this morning. Another sign our life has changed: becoming blase about general anaesthesia ("it's only a lumbar puncture today")! The port they put in last week is working beautifully, and healing well. The doctor even said that he can go swimming after the needle comes out! Tomorrow is two doses of chemo after school then a week off. We are so grateful for some normal in our lives, almost don't know what to do with it!!

Agnes is settling in too, learning to sleep better and definitely keen on the whole eating thing!

Here is a pic of the boys, one blond and one fuzzy, both blinded by a sudden patch of light:
