It is amazing to me to see the difference in Trent from day to day. For example:
This picture was taken Tuesday.
Trent decided he needed eyebrows so he grabbed my eyeliner and fixed himself up right. He didn't say anything about it and called all the kids in for a chat. One by one they noticed his eyebrows and started giggling. Pretty funny.
Wednesday, day 1 of chemo, Trent's legs were pretty puffy so they gave him Lasix. Thank goodness we were seated right next to the bathroom because he was in there every few minutes. One time he came back around the corner in this silly grandma wig. Everyone in the infusion room got a pretty good laugh and Cyd and Brent came running to get a picture with him. Cyd grabbed this weirdo african american wig with red highlights. Quite a trio!
As we were leaving that day Trent found this strip of hair, not really even a wig. We couldn't decide if it was a comb-over or a mohawk. Trent chose the mohawk. :)
Out of nowhere Brent appeared-ready for another picture! We all had a pretty good laugh about that!
Thursday brought more Lasix and a visit from Trisha and Dave. Trent was still doing pretty good and we enjoyed laughing with them while Trent got poisoned.
By Friday the swelling had still not gone down so Trent got Lasix again. He will continue on Lasix for one week at home. When we left the hospital Trent was still doing pretty good but by the time we got home he looked like this.
This isn't the worst. As soon as Trent gets the Neulasta shot tomorrow he will go downhill pretty fast. We are gearing up for an awful week, hopefully not longer than that! :)
