Stitches out

We went today to get Dante's stitches out from the biopsy. I think it looks pretty yucky, but the surgeon insisted it was normal. (He has a scar in his groin and a scar on his chest where they implanted the medi-port.) I guess it is hard to see any imperfections on your child. :)

I also heard from the doctor's office, that the bloodwork they did on Friday, Dante's levels looked perfect! He had been low in a couple of areas, but now they are good. The doctor kept saying he would be sick all weekend and start to look pale, but so far - he's the same as always! Now, I can't leave his sight or else he freaks, but otherwise, he is still playing and walking around and eating OK. And we are happy for that.


  • Everything sounds like it's happening positively which is wonderful. I think about you guys everyday! This blog is a great way to do this. I started one for Barb as you know and it has been such a big help I think, for her.
    Love you all!

  • I am a friend of Kip's and have been watching Dante "grow up" through her blog and her layouts of him.

    I am glad to hear this sweet boy is doing well with the treatments. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
