Josh still didn't qualify for maintenance this morning.
Well, to be fair, it sort of worked; his counts have improved across the board but his ANC is still only 582 which is short of the 750 mark he needs to hit. We will eat more salmon and try again in a week or so.
This delay is kind of expected by the doctor's and is really not going to affect Josh in the long term. Right now he gets a much deserved break from chemo and gets a chance to feel good and enjoy having a good amount of energy. Needless to say Joshua was not very disappointed when he found out he would not be getting an LP today. He was also NPO and was really glad the he could go out and get something to eat instead of waiting.
It has been great watching him the last week as he has played and had a good time with his cousins. It has been difficult watching Josh not be able to act like a kid these last few months. He was always such an energetic and fearless little guy. I have had a chance to catch furtive glimpses of the old Joshua these last few days. I hope it continues.
