Tooth Fairy alert... Day 103 23FEB09

Guess who lost his other front tooth this evening? Thank goodness his platelets are up to 159. 

Josh had school this morning and then headed off to the clinic for chemo. His platelets are up and his ANC is down to 320. His hemoglobin is down as well to 7.4 and he may need another transfusion this week. We go back to the clinic on Thursday for labs to find out. Joshua got his Vincristine as well this afternoon. Now we wait to see if he can qualify next week for the next round of chemo drugs.

Renee said that almost everyone at the clinic today was with us at the retreat the day before. Small world. I guess we all had to get back to "normal" today.

For now we are back on germ patrol and hoping that his counts stay up so we will not be delayed again. We also have a chance to take him to Universal Studios on Saturday with the Starlight Foundation if he is well enough to go.
