Day +1

Good Evening,

Today Xander has been doing okay. He had a visit from a great friend, got disconnected from the pole and took a walk outside in the beautiful weather! He also received a very cool Birthday present... a Lego mini figure collection and display box - he absolutely loves it!

Xander had his first dose of Methotrexate today, it was technically considered a "micro" dose. Anything that is considered "micro" in the BMT department is good in our book. This is to keep his existing T-cells from attacking the new cells. He will receive 3 or 4 more doses while he is here. He has had a couple headaches, but has been able to get them under control using multiple methods. He had a great visit from our chiropractor  Dr. Gibson - a MUCH needed adjustment after laying in bed for a week. Dr. Gibson uses an "actuator" on him, so it is completely controlled and Xander is able to give very good feedback.

Of course, Xander misses Hobbes VERY much! A little note came his way today, along with a very sweet drawing to keep by his bed.

Peace and love to all of Xander's followers,
