Kicked out of my own (couch) bed
Usually, Callum wants to sleep with me, so we cuddle until he falls asleep and then I transfer him to his bed for the night. Then he'll wake up at some point in the early morning and ask the nurse to move him back with me, to my bed.
This morning when he woke up, he asked me if he could lay in my bed for a bit. I asked him if he wanted me to lay with him and he said nah, you can lay in my bed. Jeez, thanks for that! ;-)
We started our chemo later than usual (for us) last night. His pee levels weren't clearing (they hydrate him before chemo with a bicarbonate, which coats his kidneys and alkalizes his pee - since the chemo is so acidic they want his pee to be more basic than usual to neutralize the acidity). So it wasn't until 6pm that we actually started the methotrexate. Ugh! I just hope all that extra fluids before the chemo may help us clear by tomorrow! :)
