Joseph was finished with school yesterday and Alex and Nikole finished at noon, so Sam brought them to hang out with Joshua. He had a lot of fun playing with them in the playroom and it's nice that he's in a good mood today. Joshua has just one more night of chemo tonight, then we get to go home tomorrow for another week, with the next check-in tentatively set for June 7th.
I didn't know that there's a small theater on the third floor of the children's hospital. This afternoon we were invited to attend a Dr.Seuss production put on by a group from Mesa Community College (The college just happens to be conveniently located across the street from the hospital). It was a delightful musical of "Horton Hears A Who." With all the singing, dancing, colorful costumes and comical dialogue, it was quite entertaining. Joshua enjoyed it very much, and the big kids liked it too. After the show we ordered dinner from the cafeteria, it was fun to spend the afternoon with the kids. The music therapist came by and did music with all my rowdy kids in our room, she was a real trouper because all 4 noisy kiddos together in a confined space can prove to be a challenge to have them all pay attention. They had a fun day and Joshua actually went to bed early tonight.
