Finally, after several days of summer weather, we got some much-needed rain today. I enjoyed walking back from lunch in a little down pour. Rudy did well all day. He started sprinting again and tolerated two 1-hour sprints like a pro. After lunch, we settled down for a nice “rainy day” cuddle time that lasted about 3 hours during which he did a sprint, endured a straight cath for a urine sample and a RT treatment…again like a pro. The immunology folks stopped by to review Rudy’s history and begin their own records on his case as we will have a long term relationship with their department. In the future, our follow-up trips to UCLA will involve a few appointments with the various departments that will need to monitor Rudy’s condition. Immunology will be one of them and with the onset of a few infections this week, it seems now is a good time to get them on board specifically. I’m headed back to SB tonight so I can spend the day with my folks tomorrow before they leave for their home in Kansas on Saturday. I hate to leave the sweet little one but thankfully he is asleep…it’s always so much easier to leave when he is asleep. No doubt he’ll have a long string of his nurse, RT and Dr. friends dropping in to check on him tomorrow so he certainly won’t be alone…I can’t express enough how thankful Rolf and I are for the many capable and loving hands that have cared for our son and continue to express their love and care for him whether they are assigned to him or dropping by on their break! We are so blessed.
