ello , and welcome back to Billy's page . Today has been a relaxing , uneventful day full of Football ! Billy has pretty much rebounded from last weeks episode with the fever , and his stay in the Hospital . Although his blood counts are down , he feels well . Billy did some of his school work today , and will be visited by his teacher tomorrow for a few hours of schooling . Billy really looks forward to the visits from his homebound teacher , they really get along well , and he is able to keep up with his school work with little or no problems . It also gives him some time to step back into the " real world " . Well , back to the game !! Have a good evening .Tues. 12 Nov. 2002
First of all , let me thank those of you at Billy's School who have given us the FABULOUS gift certificates to our local restaurants , and shopping centers . THANK YOU ! They will surly come in handy during these difficult times when there is really no time to cook , or even think about cooking .Wed. 13 Nov. 2002
Hello All , and welcome back to Billy's page . Well here it is , and all too soon . Tomorrow is Thursday and Billy will be admitted to ACH once again . We are to be at the Hospital at 8:30 am for another chemotherapy session . Billy will be receiving 3 chemotherapy drugs per day over a 5 day period . One of the drugs is the one that Billy has had a difficult time with ( VP 16 ).Thurs. 14 Nov. 2002 ( Room # 265 bed A )
Hello , to All Our Friends . Yes , Billy was admitted to ACH this morning at 8:30 . He has already had one of the chemotherapy drugs administered , and was receiving the second one when I left the Hospital at 6:30 pm . He managed to eat something before he fell under the effects of the drugs , which is a good thing *wink* . He handled the VP-16 very well because he had a dose of hydro-cortazone and benedryl which counter-act the very bad side effects of this particular drug . These also knock him out for a couple hours too !! Speaking of " knocked out " , I'm going to try and get an hours sleep , I have to go to Tampa and pick up Ana ( Alicia's Sister ) at 10:00 tonight , she's flying in from NJ . Until next time , Be Well .Sat. 16 Nov. 2002
Hello All , welcome back to Billy's Page . As you can tell by the icon above , it is stormy here today . We are expecting some severe weather in this part of Florida today and tonight , due to one of a few " Cold " fronts we'll have during our 2 weeks of winter *wink* !
Mon. 18 Nov. 2002 ( Happy Birthday Mom )
Welcome back to Billy's page . Billy will be coming home tonight at 9:00 pm . Yes , it is kind of an odd time of day to be coming home from the Hospital . We thought it best that Billy come home , given the opportunity . He finished his chemotherapy at 3:00 , but has to be hydrated , and watched for a few hours . We asked him if he wanted to come home or stay another night *wink* , Yes , he choose to come Home !Wed. 20 Nov. 2002
Hello All , welcome back to Billy's page . Billy is doing very well since his release from the Hospital . His appetite is just as it always was, and he hasn't stopped eating ! Don't get me wrong , the Hospital food is Great , but you can't beat home cooking ( thanks Ana ) !Fri. 22 Nov. 2002 ( Where were you , 39 years ago today ? )
Hello , and welcome back to Billy's page . Billy is with his class mates today on a field trip to Sunken Gardens here in St.Petersburg , Alicia went along as well . As you can probably imagine , Billy was very excited about the trip , and he can't wait to see all his Friends .

Hello , all is well ! Just wanted to say that we just had the most PERFECT view of the Space Shuttle take off ! It is a perfectly clear night here in St.Pete. , and we can see the launch from our front yard when it goes up . Billy is amazed at the fact that it is launched from 150 miles to the east ( Cape Kennedy ) , and we can see it ! We can also see it during the day if the skies are clear . Good Night !Mon. 25 Nov. 2002
