Day 7 – back home

IMG_20180826_143708115Every morning when I wake up and see so many comments from my family and friends, it makes me feel so special. Thanks guys for reading my blog every day and appreciating it.

So today morning, I woke up with very good night sleep and felt great. I even had a little competition with my nursing assistant to see if I can take a shower first or he can change my bed sheets first. Ofcourse I beat him..yay!!

I was so happy that I just stood at the doorway and looked around for sometime and then I said “ I missed you home”

Doctor said that all my blood work looks good and I can go home today after my last medication through IV. Nurse gave me some medication that made me so tired and restless and later on I fell asleep. My mom told me that I got a strong chemotherapy medication through IV for 2 hours. Nurse was checking my vitals every 30 minutes and my mom was sitting by my side the whole time because this medication can give the severe allergic reaction where I can have breathing difficulty or rashes. But I did fine with the medication and was feeling better after the nap.

Finally we were going home and I was soooo happy! I said thank you and bye to all my wonderful nurses who took care of me. I was so excited that even though my legs were feeling tired I walked like 2 miles to go to the parking lot to get into my car. I could hear my parents talking about how happy and nervous they were taking me home. It was a long ride and started to complain then my mom told me to get used to it as I will be coming here every week. Uff.. I do not like the long rides but I will have to do it..no choice.

After I reached home, I was so happy that I just stood at the doorway and looked around for sometime and then I said “ I missed you home” My parents started to laugh.

IMG_20180826_180729653I opened my big big lego which my Aunt gave me as a challenge to finish in less than 30 days. I made few piles of the legos before my dad told me that some of my friends want to play Roblox with me. I left every thing and started to enjoy that.

I think my mom and dad were happy to see me walking around, climbing stairs steadily, having fun with my friends on computer, as they both sat next to me. I love my mom and dad and I thanked them with the big hug – They are the best in the world!!

    Arjun,

    So happy to hear that you’re back home. You have had quite a week. I love watching you play hockey. You have so much determination and heart on the ice. I know that those same characteristics will no doubt allow you to defeat this Leukemia.

    Colin told me your favorite team is the Las Vegas Golden Knights. I’m sure they’re going to have another great year. Who would have thought they would have done so well in their first season.

    Stay strong!!

    Coach John

    Hey Arjun, It is so good to see you are back home 🙂

    Know that apart from all friends and family members who wish you best regularly and in person, there are 10 times more people who may not be talking to you regularly but are rooting for you from sidelines. I hope you can feel all that good karma giving you strength 🙂

    Stay sharp and keep the eye on the goal ! Remember just like on the rink, you may sometimes lose a tackle or two but the match is long and fighters always find a way to win 🙂

    I’m glad that you’re home Arjun,

    You are very brave to be so strong in the Hospital I would be scared if I was in the Hospital. I hope to see you in school as soon as you can. I know you have a long road ahead of you but I hope to see you on the ice playing hockey with the Ducks as soon as possible. The team will miss your speed and centering.
