Highlight: Joseph come through the surgery safely and has his new semi-permanent line installed.
There were problems getting the semi-permanent line in to Joseph as he is a small boy with small veins. Because of the difficulty he was in surgery an hour longer than expected. That was a very long hour for me as the previous two surgery’s were shorter than expected.
There was also a new sample of his bone marrow taken to see how the leukemia cells are responding to the steroids so far. This sample will be sent off for very detailed genetic analysis to help fine tune the treatment.
The dental staff came in and looked at his mouth and did not see any major problems.
The line that was in his groin has now been removed and we hope to see him up on his feet soon.
Right now Joseph is still feeling a bit groggy and tired and is propped up in bed with some food in front of him. He is napping and then having a look around and then napping again.
Thank you for praying for our wee man
