Spring Break

Andrew had been feeling so well after round 5 that we decided to take a little "spring break" from cancer.  It was such a long and difficult fall and winter, that we really needed a respite from it all.  We decided to drive down to Washington D.C. to visit my sister, see the cherry blossoms, and show the boys the sights.

Andrew did have a few pretty rough days about a week after the chemo.  The neupogen injections gave him some terrible bone and muscular pain, and he was unable to sleep for 2 nights.  But after that, he was feeling really good.  We drove down to D.C. on a Friday night and stayed for 3 days.  We took the boys to the zoo, toured monuments, had a few dinners with friends, and searched in vain for cherry blossoms (early bloom this year).  Although it was wonderful and fun, we probably did too much.  Andrew was feeling poorly yesterday, and spent most of the day on the couch recouping his strength.  I guess we really wanted to pretend everything was back to normal and went overboard.  He's feeling better now and we're gearing up for round 6, which starts on the 6th.
