Today was probably the quickest clinic visit we have ever had. We left at 6am and were home by 10:30am. Everything looked great. His counts are starting to recover-his hemoglobin was over 9, his platelets 59000, and his ANC 320(we would like that to be higher!). Next week we are slated to start Maintenance if his platelets are 75000 and his ANC is 750-so who knows? If his counts are good enough next week he will receive...
lumbar puncture with chemo
vincristine through his port
start a 5 day pulse of steroids
take 2 oral chemos
So please pray that his counts recover and pray that he will have minimal side effects from chemo and steroids. I wish I had more to write but I am exhausted and I am going to take advantage of the fact that both kids are in bed!
