We are on that slippery slope again. Joshua's ANC is down to 640 and his RBC and hemoglobin are right on the edge of transfusion land. We knew his counts were dropping, he always gets cold and can not warm up when he starts getting low. His energy levels are still good so they are holding off for now on the transfusion. He will go back Wednesday to get another CBC and see what his counts are then.
His chemo was quick and he said getting his port accessed was no big deal this time. He told me before he left for the hospital, "I am not going to cry today when they access my port." He is such a brave little guy. I think his t-shirt about sums it up. It reads, "Danger is my middle name."
