Henry's bone marrow test is done and we are now waiting for results. When the gang of peds doctors came through this morning on rounds they did mention, much to our relief, that Henry is not presenting like someone with leukemia. Woot!
Monsieur Henry was a super champ when it came time to get sedated for his procedure this afternoon. He was napping in my arms and the anesthesiologist was like "this may sting and wake him up but he's going to get immediately droopy in your arms when I push this." Like dead-to-the-world droopy. Henry went under without waking up and stayed that way until after the procedure was over. (It took about 25 minutes.) As he was waking up he was a bit rummy and quite hungry. He drank a lot of milk and then started to tentatively play with his toys. He was particularly excited by the appearance of a new dragon from his best pal Miss E.B. (I'm quite sure he's named the dragon Beowulf.)
We send our thanks to everyone who has sent us well wishes and healthy vibes for Henry. And many thanks in particular to the following folks - Brother Nick, Megan, and Miss Amelia Jane for agreeing to watch Beauty the wonder dog for us; to Sara, Josh, and Noodle for bringing us a bag o' goodies yesterday and lunch today; to Sara, Megan, and Tanya for the gift certificate to Delivered Dish (the food we can have delivered is much better than the stuff available at the cafeteria); and to Ms. A, Miss E.B., and Brian for introducing Henry to Beowulf and dropping off chocolates for us. I'll be sure to eat my share so Henry gets chocolate-flavored milks from mom.
