I have been with Adam two days now and I am in utter awe at the amounts of food this kid is eating. And he's not even on steroids (which can make you really hungry). It's very impressive. Today is the first day Adam has been unhooked from his IV tube which allowed me to give him his first shower since coming to the hospital. He screamed so loud and so long, I had no less than three nurses come in and ask if I needed any help. But, we were successful and now we have a clean boy. After the shower, we went to the oncology playroom where he immediately attached himself to a large yellow toy dump truck. Needless to say, the collection of earth moving vehicles in our room continues to grow. So, all in all, he is doing very well.
