This Week: 4-Day Chemo At CHLA

It's 9:40 a.m. Pablo is still asleep. Jo Ann and I are on our laptops racing through as much work—professional and Pablo advocacy—as possible before heading out to CHLA. As soon as the 4 West ward has a bed for us, we'll fly over there and get situated for a four day chemo treatment. Not sure exactly how that's going to shake out though: I rang the charge nurse earlier, and she informed me that they have five kids checking in today with only two beds opening. It will work out somehow.

We're assuming this week's in-patient stay will kick off with a blood transfusion, since P's red blood cells were low on Thursday, and dropped even more by Saturday. We'll keep you up to date on all this as the day wears on....

Meantime, here's another round of Polly's Pablo pics to kick off the week.... Polly captures his smile like no one else—and nothing makes us smile more than seeing his loving grin....
