Day Negative 9: Guitars, Vacuums and Pain

Well, today was not a good day. The pain set in from the central line surgery and Ezra was inconsolable for much of the day, despite the use of a good amount of pain medication. We are hoping for a better day tomorrow before the side effects of the chemo set in.

Despite that, we had two good distractions. First, Musicians on Call stopped by with their guitars and we jammed to Puff the Magic Dragon and some Music for Aardvarks songs. Nothing makes Ezra happier than holding a guitar. The musicians told us that they were blown away by his guitar skills. Only problem is that he loves it so much that he didn't want to give back the guitar...he is still a 3 year old. Another thing Ezra loves is vacuum cleaners. Mommy and Daddy gave him a vacuum cleaner for taking his oral meds and it got him out of bed and walking around. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that it really has suction power and it's picking up plenty of dirt off the floor. Swifter Wetjet is now being bought to keep up with our crazy germaphobic standards.
