The results: nothing notable. There was no sign of any problems. The doctor took two biopsies just to make sure, the results will be back in a couple of days. So we are no closer to solving the mystery.
Joshua had a pretty good day, they left him unhooked after his trip to surgery this morning until 5:00 this evening. He got a chance to walk around and get a little exercise. His counts have dropped again, his ANC was 287. Dr. Rossbach is giving him GCFS again to stimulate his blood cell production. Last time he got the same thing it shot his ANC over 4000. It takes a couple of days to really kick in so he and Renee are still stuck for a while longer. I am pretty sure he will make it home before the weekend hits. As soon as his ANC gets over 500 he can get his next round of chemo and we can get him back on schedule.
This has been another long and unexpected hospital stay. It will take Josh and Renee a week at home to recover from being stuck in the same tiny room all this time. I left Jarrod at the hospital this evening while I went to teach and he got to spend some extra time with his brother and Renee. I think they were going to watch "The Goonies" this evening, wish I could have stayed. It's one of my favorites.
