Book #7 Finished!
William started reading Harry Potter last year and was whipping through them until his cancer diagnosis. He was almost done with #6 at the time. When chemo started he never felt like reading anymore. I hear this is a common side effect with chemo. In December, after his 8th round of chemo had started to wear off and with no new cycle to begin, he started enjoying reading again. He started # 6 again from the beginning and moved right on to #7. We have a deal that he can't see the movie until he's finished the book. As transplant approached and we were faced with the reality that he won't be able to go to a movie theater for 6 months, we modified the rule and told him he could see the 7th movie since it only covers the first half of the book if he was more than half way done. On Saturday night before transplant, he and Ryan sneaked out of the house for a 9:50pm showing of the movie. It was amazing we even found it still in the theaters around us. He had about 100 pages left and he finished today! We did a little dance! And Aunt Angela found this cool website! I always love it when he laughs---especially in the hospital!
