Clinic news

Today we had our trip to the clinic. It was one of our faster times-we were in and out in a couple of hours. They had to call me later in the day to give me his counts. I was a little nervous of what they might be because we had been around lots of people. Lisa called and said everything looked great-hemoglobin, platelets, white blood cells, ANC, even his liver enzymes are going back down. So we are doing the same things at home and will return in a couple of weeks and James will start his second cycle of Maintenance. Every cycle last for 84 days and then starts over. This means he will have an LP, vincristine, and start steroids next visit. Please be praying for us as we slowly work ourselves back into life. Please continue to pray that he will have minimal side effects from the chemo. It is always a guessing game when he is whiny. I never know if he feels bad or he is being a two year old!

I know what you mean about guessing game of is it something real or is the two year old in them...don't feel bad asking those kind of questions. I have a two and a half year old and we are going to Russia to live this summer...I keep thinking that I am glad that he is throwing fits here b/c if it just started in Russia then I would think it was Russia and not just the two year old!
Love the great news!!
(By the way, I went to high school with your hubby and your sister in law--she was a God-send to me my freshman year of high school and probable doesn't even know it!)

It is a terrible guessing game. I will be praying for this tough time. I think your husband called maintenance "a tease" at lunch a few weeks ago. Let's hope that it can be more normal than that.
