Dylan is doing ok, he had clinic on Friday and his
Halloween is well and truly in the air, I want to thank “Party Fair” on
Saturday we all went to
Dylan saw the dentist this week, and he had another tooth pulled. It is one of the side effects of chemo, his teeth are in a terrible state, he needs to have his molars pulled next week as the nerve endings are dying and the adult teeth are not pushing the baby teeth out. The tooth that they pulled today was very strange to look at, all the enamel was gone except a small amount on the tip. Sadly this is very common with children who have chemo but in hind sight it is a minor issue that can be easily repaired these days, and as an adult know one will be able to tell the difference, so I am not concerning myself about it too much. Dylan also had a hearing test done today and we will pick up those results next week to give to his hearing teacher at school so she can meet his needs accordingly.
The boys are getting excited about their birthdays, Dylan has started the countdown with starting every morning with “now there’s …days til my birthday!” Thank you to everyone who bought the boy’s gifts on their wish lists, we could not have done it this year without your help.
Dylan continues Karate every Friday with Kids Kicking Cancer, and he has now made it to yellow belt. He will get his belt at the next ceremony and I will be sure to catch some photos. Cain continues his bass playing endeavors, with band practice every Wednesday night with the New York Pops at the RMDH. They really are sounding great now. Cain is very excited because he wrote a song with Charlie and came up with a bass line too. The NY Pops said that they want to continue to work on it as one of the band’s songs!
