No and Un-uh... Day 106 26FEB09
Joshua got a no and an un-uh today. No he currently does not qualify for next weeks chemo and un-uh we are not going to Universal Studios.
His ANC is down to 129. His HGB and Platelets went up to 7.9 and 169 respectively and are doing okay.
He was pretty bummed about not being able to go on Saturday. We hate having to tell him that because of something he absolutely cannot control he is not going to be able to do things. We often have long discussions and weigh the risks of taking him out in public.
Caution always prevails.
Josh was really tired again today. He fell asleep cuddling with me on the couch early this evening. We are watching him rather closely this week because this is the period where somnolence could affect him. Somnolence can be a side effect of the cranial radiation that he got six weeks ago. He may sleep for long periods of time for several days. Yesterday was the six week mark, so we will see what happens.
New short term goal for Joshua is to get his ANC to 750 by Monday so he can qualify.
