Kyle finished radiation yesterday! Although I think he will miss his daily round of giggle gas, he is more than happy to be finished with the routine of heading to the UW Medical Center for an early morning nap. For a boy who loves breakfast it has been quite a test to not eat anything for 6 hours before his treatment! But he may be most excited to have his pic line out. Now he can go swimming, take a bath without having to hold his arm up out of the water, and he doesn't have to wrap his arm before soccer or skiing. Not to mention he doesn't have to put up with his mama and papa flushing his pic line every 8 hours! Kyle had a great weekend leading up to the end of his treatment. He went to Happy Valley on Friday spending the afternoon with his kindergarten friends. Saturday he played soccer with his Southside team. He scored many goals (I think the tally was 9) and came up with a great save robbing the opposing team of a goal! Kyle and Nicolas went mountain biking with their dad and Cara on Saturday afternoon and finished off the weekend at their friend Mackenzie's birthday party at Tube Time. What 6 year old wouldn't like a weekend like that? Sunday night Kyle and I made our way once again to Seattle. After his morning treatment Kyle spent a good part of Monday afternoon looking through quarters with his grammie. He is collecting all the state quarters and is busy filling books with the ones he has so far. His grammie even went to the bank Monday to buy rolls of quarters for him to sort through. Nicolas and papa came down on Monday night and met us at the UW on Tuesday morning. Kyle raced in on his healies, zooming down the halls as fast as he could. He surprised all the nurses with flowers to thank them for taking such wonderful care of him. And they had a surprise for him too! A graduation certificate that they had all signed with wonderful thoughts and a new stuffed Husky puppy named Slush! It was sad to say goodbye to the other boys who have been in treatment at the same time, Jordan and Diego, but they are both finished this week too! Kyle, Nicolas and papa went out for a great big breakfast to celebrate and spent the day playing at the Ronald McDonald House. We had a quick check up at Children's in the afternoon and then headed back to grammie and grampie's for a night of FARKLE and mexican food! Today we start our way back to "normal". Kyle woke up at 6:30 ready for cereal. Tonight we are going to watch the Mariners at SAFECO Field and then we are heading home. Tomorrow it is back to the Cottage School in the morning and then Friday afternoon with this friends at Happy Valley. Thank you to the wonderful caregivers at the UW for embracing Kyle and focusing so much positive energy to helping him fight to be well. Thank you to all our wonderful friends for your daily prayers and Kyle has his next MRI on Monday morning. It will be our first look inside his noggin in 8 weeks. We continue to pray for miraculous things!
