Let’s just start by saying that the nurses are AMAZING! Fierce lights up when he sees them. Cynthia, Anita & Tina spoiled him with tons of attention today. ShauntA bought him a Christmas present and LaMont gave him a Joy Jar filled to the brim with little stuffed animals and such.
Besides a bit of pink skin, I don’t have any noticeable side effects yet (they set in near the end, I am told). I apply corn starch on my skin during the day and put hydrocortisone cream followed by a lotion they gave me on at night. I am usually up at 7:30 or 8:00 am with Fierce, out the door by 9:30 am in order to make a 10:40 am appointment and out of there by 11:45 -ish.
The fun part of the day is trying out a new lunch spot or taking Fierce somewhere in the city. Last week we went to the City Museum and saw a juggler and acrobat. He got to paint for the first time and play on slides in their Toddler Town. The over-all feel of the museum was a bit like St. Louis, dark and dingy with glimmers of hope. My favorite part, was on the first floor, which was converted into a cave display. You were able to walk through all of these catacombs and secret passageways.
