Clinic day… Day 794 17JAN11

Joshua left for clinic early this morning and he was expecting to be there for a little while. He started off with a finger stick to see if his counts were okay. They were, his ANC was 1450 which is about normal for him. Next he got his port accessed and got vincristine followed by his pentam treatment for his lungs. Renee and the boys didn't get back home until 1:30 this afternoon. Not much fun to spend a rainy holiday in the clinic. They spent the afternoon doing school work and hoping that the weather would clear off. The rain finally abated this evening but it kept the boys in the house all day which is probably a good thing as it gives them a chance to rest up a little bit. We will probably all need the rest as this week is also a prednisone week. Taming the monster is hard work. Here's hoping that Joshua can keep it tightly wrapped up like he did last time and we can keep all the doors on their hinges…

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Glad to hear your ANC is where it needs to be. Sorry to hear the monster is being fed again. Just hope it is able to behave.

We are celebrating Dylan's 2nd birthday today. He's sort of clueless about the whole event.

Hope you have sunshine today so you and Jarrod can get outside and skate.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
