Update from the clinic
Yesterday was our clinic visit and it went rather smoothly. They got James into his procedure fairly quickly which was great since he couldn't have anything to eat or drink. He had finished his 10 day round of antibiotic for his ear and when the doctor looked yesterday his right ear was still red. he decided to put him on Augmenton, which is a little stronger than amoxicillian. His counts came back OK, his hemoglobin and platelets were fine but his ANC was 1100. To me the ANC is a little borderline and given we are going out of town, we are going to play it safe and not attend church this weekend and the Christmas Eve service. That recommendation came from the nurse practitioner as well. James has a cough and I don't want it to go any further! Please continue to pray that he will be free from infection, that he will remain well during our trip and have no hospital visits! Also pray for us now because we are on the 2nd day of steroids!
