Lego Mania, Hospital Release, and Marrow Matching

TOM IS GOING HOME TODAY!!!!!! we'll be let go around 2pm after Tom receives his daily antibiotics (they're intravenously delivered). 

Somewhat of a downer, Oliver was deemed not a match.  Alex is due to have his blood drawn on Monday so we should know in a week or two whether or not he is.  He has been reassured by the professionals here that if Alex is also a negative, we should have no problems with the registry.  While they seem sure it will all work out, it was still a bit of a bummer.  Keep your fingers crossed that Alex is a match.

In other news, we have quite a lot of stuff to pack up... afterall, I'd prepared for a 3-5 week stay and it's only been 2 1/2.  Of the tons of stuff to pack, here are some photos of the lego castle that Tom has been working on... he'd appreciate it if I let everyone know it's only about "half way" done.

So, now everyone knows that I've married a giant five year old and also what might make for a good Christmas present for Tom this year to keep him busy for his marrow transplant stay.  Legos seem to be something that's simple enough to not cause headaches and over-exertion from focus (which becomes difficult when he's drugged up in the hospital), but interesting enough that he enjoys doing it.  That's the justification behind what you see here.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
