Day 4

IMG_20180823_141129165_2Morning of August 23rd, I woke up and was surprised by the number of comments I received on my blog in one night. I did not know I was that famous and so many people are praying for me. I am really thankful to all of you for all the love and wishes for my recovery. My journey is going to be so easy with all of you by my side.

I started on my chemotherapy.

So it was a nothing to do day today. I started on my chemotherapy. Nurse gave it to me IMG_20180823_140117449through my port at 2 AM while I was asleep and my mom told me. I woke up little tired but felt much better with my pain. Most interesting thing was that I swallowed 5 small pills at the same time with one cup of water and my nurse was amazed with my ability to do so.

After that I hung out in the room, made some more legos, watched some TV and responded to some of the comments on my blog. I had a physical therapy session today with some exercises, walking by myself, doing the stairs. I did pretty well actually and my therapist was impressed.

The best thing I heard today was that I might be able to go home by Sunday.

IMG-20180823-WA0009I also made some mess in the play room with the shaving cream and colors, played some instruments in music therapy. Got some goodies from the fun cart and met some new people who are trying to help me. Worst part was taking the shower with the port in chest and pain in the back where I had the surgery. But I did it with help from my mom. Did a lot of face time with my brother and my little cousins who I miss so much. The best thing I heard today was that I might be able to go home by Sunday if I do well on the medications. Cannot wait to be home!!

    Hi Arjun,

    I have heard a lot of good things about you from your Disha Mammi. You are a real fighter and a brave boy. Keep up the positive attitude to fight against this disease. I am sure in your this journey, the day will come soon when you will inform all of us that you have recovered fully and back to school and have started playing your favorite sport, hockey!
