Wednesdays are doctor days. That just means that our time at the hospital is a little longer than the normal days because after treatment, we meet with the doctor. It’s not a big deal as long as I have cards (which are always in my purse!) to entertain Cale. The drive home then, includes loud music playing of one of Cale’s favorite bands and me consuming a granola bar, which like the cards, there is always one in my purse. The cranky monster comes out if my over demanding stomach doesn’t receive it’s much needed feedings. ;)
The doctor went over today with us all the spots and scans where Cale is receiving the radiation. He said there are 7 beams at one time on him…crazy huh? Also, the treatment plan is set up for 20 total treatments and today’s was 4 out of the 20. As of now we should be heading home the 23rd of June!
This morning we had OT and took a trip to Pike Place Market. There is so much to see! We only had time (and toleration) for a good chunk of it, so another trip will come soon! There were a couple things I had my eyes on, one of them being extremely tasty jam! We also tasted some chocolate covered cherries (special ones!) that I was so tempted to purchase in the moment of my taste buds doing the happy dance, but the little bag was $10 and Cale said I couldn’t buy it. Bummer man.
It ended up being a good thing though, because I was able to instead use my saved penny’s to buy a cup of coffee at the original Starbucks! I was totally making the moment a lot more exciting then I’m sure it probably was, but it was fun and Cale (the man who doesn’t like coffee), played a long. :)
