Billy's Page # 15 , Welcome !
Fri. 4 Apr. 2003
Hello , welcome back to Billy's Page ! I can not be more Proud of My Son than I am today , as is Alicia as well . Billy wanted so very much to participate in his school's annual Jog-A-Thon , but we all know that Billy just can't run at this time . This didn't stop him in the least ! He did participate in the Jog-A-Thon , and completed the 1 ( one ) lap , 1/4 mile that he promised himself he could do .Here is a photo of Billy and his "Crutches" , along with Coach Wood completing a lap in the Jog-A-Thon ! Billy wasn't gonna let this thing called cancer deter him from being a "normal" kid . It took Billy 9 minutes to complete the 1/4 mile lap , but he did finish it and felt a large weight lift off his shoulders . This is such a great obstical for him to surpass , and now he can put it in with the things he thought he "couldn't do" .Tues. 8 Apr. 2003
Hello , and welcome . Been pretty busy around here the past week or so . Billy had his blood counts checked yesterday , and his platelets were very low , so this morning he is having a transfusion of platelets . He also has physical therapy this afternoon . Alicia is feeling a bit under the weather again , and is trying to squeeze in a Dr. appointment . She is really running herself down . I managed to get the house painted on Fri. and Sat., and Alicia and I are getting the grounds ready for some new plantings . Everything looks Great !!*wink*!!Fri. 11 Apr. 2003
Glad to see you made it back *wink* . Billy is enjoying the day at school with all his friends . Today was class picture day , and Billy wasn't gonna miss it ! He has been doing pretty well since his last chemo . , He hasn't gotten the dreaded fever as of yet . His Dr. said it was OK to put off his next chemotherapy session a couple days since his next session would start on the 18th , Billy's Birthday . Billy will start on Monday instead . Thanks Dr. *wink* !Mon. 14 Apr. 2003
I hope this entry finds you all in good spirits . Billy has had a wonderfully restful time at home since his release from ACH . We went out to dinner last night to one of his favorite places , Sweet Tomatoes ! He ate very well , and is looking forward to his next dinner out which will probably be on his Birthday , Friday . He want to go to Outback Steak house !! Which is his second most favorite !! We are expecting his Uncle Juani ( Alicia's Brother ) to come up from Miami for the weekend , and Billy's Birthday . Billy is really looking forward to his visit .Fri. 18 Apr. 2003
Today is Billy's 11th Birthday , on behalf of Alicia ( Billy's Mom ) and myself , I would like to say , " We Love you so very much Billy , we hope this day finds you feeling well , and in good spirits " . We want to wish you the happiest of Birthdays , and know that you are the Love of our lives , and will always be . We Love you so very much Son , Happy Birthday .
You know I had to get some photo's up here for all to see . Billy's counts were too low to have a crowd around him , so Alicia , Juani ( Billy's Uncle ) and I went out to Outback Steak house for dinner , and came home for some Cake and Ice cream ! Here are a couple photo's , Billy and Juani , and the man of the day himself !Mon. 21 Apr. 2003 ( 727-898-7451 Room # 262 bed B )
Hello all , welcome back to Billy's page . Well , we had a great couple weeks out of the Hospital , and never saw the dreaded "fever" . Billy had a wonderful Birthday although he was unable to be with his friends because of his condition . Billy's Uncle did come up from Miami , as you know , and made his Birthday special ( Thanks Juani ) . Billy even had a chance to go to the Putt-Putt golf course for a round of golf !Wed. 23 Apr. 2003 ( 727-898-7451 Room # 263 bed B )
Yes , Billy changed rooms , or should I say...we had his room changed . After the terrible time Billy had with his last experience with a sick ( infectious ) room mate , we decided to change rooms when another child with a cough was placed in with Billy . We just refuse to accept that this "has to be". We all got very sick from the previous sick room mate , and Alicia is STILL taking anti-biotics . We didn't want to be too forceful but , they understood our position . I couldn't stand to see Billy in that state of sickness again . We wouldn't want Billy to be placed in the same room with another child if Billy was infectious . Soooooooooooo , we're in another room for the rest of the stay ( at least Saturday ).Please proceed on to page # 16 ( click "next" below )
