8 weeks of honeymoon

Amaey started his Consolidated maintenance on thursday. The next 8 weeks are going to be easy. Next 4 weeks we do not have any procedures and we only need to go back to the hospital for bloodwork.
He had 3 questions for the doctor when we went in on the 26th--
- when can i start going to school
- when can i go to disneyland
- can i go to coyote point museum?

The doctor said school is a great idea and museum is fine as well however we will need to wait on disneland for a while.

I have started a music class with him and i took him for a visit to his school last week. He was really overwhelmed when he went there. All the teachers and children were genuinely happy to see him. I guess he wasn't expecting special attention so he just shyed away and was glued to my feet the entire time.

If anyone saw Amaey right now there is nothing in his persona that would make you feel that he is sick. He is not neutropinic anymore so we can see friends and family and take him places. Act as normal as we can. It's nice to have this respite. However his temperament is something else. I do not know if it is 3.5yr tantrums or the medicines. I'm sure it's a little of both.

Now that things are setteling a bit Arjun is showing signs of adjustment. He gets upset at Amaey, complains that he is not getting enough attention and wants his alone time.

As for myself... I used to get more done when I was working. I'm convinced that it takes a different type of person to be a stay at home mom. Am I that person? I do not think so. Can I be that person? I guess I will just have to learn on the job and find out.

Hi Purvi -- I love that you are blogging this experience. Please give both your beautiful boys a hug from me. A friend of mine who is a children's librarian suggested some good books (I remember you saying you were doing lots of reading with Amaey).

We think about Amaey all the time and hope he is doing well. Sidney sends belated birthday wishes and thinks he would be great as a blonde!!!
