The little seal wants to play

We had a great Saturday. GREAT. Ronan woke up at 5:30 this morning and was ready to go. We played and let Woody sleep in. We made breakfast, watched cartoons, built Legos… he was full of energy. The only thing he was a little upset about was the fact that Liam and Quinn were not home. He got really mad and insisted they get on a plane right now to come home. I finally got him off of┬áthat subject after about 20 minutes. Around 10, Marisa came by to drop off some stuff she had picked up at Costco for me and we met Jocelyn for a pedicure right up the street. It was so nice to see Joss and spend a little time with them. The only way I was allowed to get out of the house today was is if I came back with purple toes, said Master Ronan. So purple toes it is:) I was just happy to escape for an hour. After I came back, Woody left to coach his kids for their basketball game. Liam and Quinn missed it but that’s o.k. They have a good reason:) We watched a bit of the ASU football game and actually saw Liam and Uncle Scottie on T.V. cheering on ASU! We have it recorded so we can’t wait to show the boys’ when they get home Monday afternoon. The night has been spent doing laundry and getting caught up on things around here. We also had to start giving Ronan his shots again. We had about 14 days off and Ronan was not excited about his pokey. I am the one who holds him and Woody is the one who sticks him. It is over fast but still listening to your child scream that it burns and he is scared is not fun. Woody was trying to be tough but I saw the look in his eyes. He felt horrible. After we got that done and over we ┬áspent the rest of the night playing away. He has been laughing and running all around. I don’t have anyone to compare Ronan to, but I have to think he has a better chance of beating this just by the way he is acting. I know the chemo is not going to hit him until later on this week. All of his counts will come crashing down 7-10 days after the chemo which means a week from today. Next weekend will be when he is feeling the effects of the chemo. I am going to pray he gets through it with flying colors. My mom gets here next Sunday… I really hope she doesn’t have to see Ronan sick. I know if she could see the Ronan I see everyday, it would make her feel so much better. So on this Saturday night we don’t have a lot to report… which tends to be a good thing nowadays:) The only thing we have to do next week is go to the clinic on Monday and Thursday to have his blood counts checked. We will be lying low and trying to keep Ronan as healthy as possible. Have a great Saturday night!!
