More Racing action... Day 231 01JUL09

Today was another good day to stay inside all day, it has been raining non-stop. I woke up this morning to pitch black skies and torrential rain. Tomorrow is supposed to be more of the same. Driving around has been a real pleasure.

Joshua's counts slipped a little again, his ANC is down to 33 and his platelets are at 44. He is holding kind of steady but has not gotten a foot hold yet. I would really like to see his counts start climbing back up instead of sliding slowly down hill. He is not acting like his counts are low, he is still eating okay and smiles frequently. As promised, for your viewing pleasure, are several videos of Joshua racing plasmacars and having fun.

Tomorrow is more of the same, Jarrod and I will go hang out at the hospital and Joshua will continue to get pumped full of vancomycin so he can fight off the staph infection. Hopefully the labs in the morning will have an upward trend. We need something headed in the right direction.

I love watching the races! Even though your counts are low, Josh, it's nice to see you smile and play with your Daddy and balloon faces.
I hope your counts come up today and you continue to feel good.
Renee, Lee & Jarrod, you are amazing:)
Love, Laura

Good Morning Snuggle Monkey,

Now you're the Plasmacar King! What fun that must be - I really enjoyed watching you and Preston race. And it was even more fun watching you and your Dad bat the glove around. Your giggles will keep me smiling throughout the day.

Hope your counts have already started rising.

Hang tough mighty warrior - you are The Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
