On hold, again… Day 697 11OCT10

Joshua went to clinic this morning and much to our surprise his counts his ANC came back at 462. Which means he is on chemo hold yet again for at least the rest of the week. There doesn't seem to be any real cause other than, we speculate, his IVIG being stopped for a bit earlier this year. So now, for the week, we go on germ patrol and keep and eye on his temperature. Normal procedure for us unfortunately. After clinic he came home to spend some time with his teacher and worked very hard for almost two hours with her. He did really well and got a lot accomplished. The rest of the day the boys wiled away outside playing and just being boys. I managed to get home early enough to spend some time with them before bedtime which was fun. Tomorrow is back to relative normal with school work in the morning and tutoring at the CCC in the afternoon.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Bummer news on the ANC. But I have to admit, part of me is glad you get a week off. Oh well, germ patrol is probably second nature for all of you.

Glad to hear you are doing well with the school work and hope it continues.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
