Aaron is at the hospital getting his last IV infusion (we hope)! We spent from 8am to 2pm at the infusion suite. Since we were the first to arrive that day, we got the best suite. We were surrounded by windows. He is a real champ. The nurses are amazed that he doesn't cry or complain when they are sticking him or poking at him every so often. He is enjoying Dora, currently his favorite cartoon. We even got free Olive Garden thanks to B.A.S.E. Camp Children's Cancer Foundation. Most of the children needing infusions are cancer patients. Aaron's condition is so rare that no one in this hospital has ever seen it before.
Next month we will switch to subcutaneous infusions at home. These will be much shorter but we will do them once a week.
