We are well into our chemotherapy round #5. Erin and I had a great time playing in the halls and everyone just oohed and ahhed when they saw how cute our Little Air Bear is.
We got a visit from Chase who has ALL Leukemia. His Mom, Dani, has to travel from St. George 2 times a week to come to Primary Children's for treatments in the Oncology Clinic. It was sweet to visit with them for a little bit.
This morning Erin got her PEG - Asparaginase Chemotherapy Shot. I was so worried about this shot, but it ended up not being a big deal at all. Here's Nurse Emily with her scary face because we think shots are scary and the nurses don't like to make kids cry.
Nurse Emily applied "Buzzy" (pictured below) to Erin's leg where the shot was to be administered. He has a blue ice pack on him and he vibrates. The vibrations confuse the nerves so the patient doesn't feel any pain. Then, she moved Buzzy down her leg and they gave Erin the shot. Erin didn't even flinch. I don't think she even realized she was given a shot. All she was concerned about was that Buzzy was cold on her leg.
