Riding high.. Day 327 05OCT09

Joshua is riding high today. He got up this morning and headed off to the clinic for his weekly CBC. We always approach Mondays with a little apprehensiveness, we never know what his counts might be. Today was a great day! His ANC is up to 3100 and all of his other markers are good and high. What a welcome relief from the usual borderline numbers. The doctors have made some adjustments to his meds dosing and it seems to be making a difference.

The rest of the day was his normal routine. Homework, playing with his brother etc... He even managed to get in another bike ride with Jarrod before dinner. Unfortunately our visit from Mr. Fall was only a day visit. The temp is back up in the 90's and it is still hot outside. We are all hoping for cooler days soon.

So we can start this week on a high note and not worry quite as much about germs or the odd fall. Life is better right now...

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Ridin' High! I'm loving it and hope it continues until everybody is tired of the same old boring routine. Great news about your counts - let's all cross our digits so they will stay up there.

Have a marvelous day Mighty Warrior - get outside and burn up the road with your bike and kick butt all the way.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

If I did this right, it is an article out daily paper about 2 young girls who are now cancer free. There is an end, and a successful one at that.

Woo Hoo 3100! Sounds like a great number to me;) I hope it gets cool enough again to ride a while. It's always so much fun.

Take care kiddo! Love, Laura & Frank
