A little low… Day 920 23MAY11

Joshua headed off for clinic this morning, he has not been able to shake his cough and he has looked run down and rather tired the last few days so Renee took him in. His ANC has slipped to 756 which is pretty low for him, much lower than it has been in a long while. The doctor said his lungs are still clear and is sending him to see his ENT to check out his deviated septum, which is caused by the chemo, to see if that is part of the cause. She also put him on a new round of antibiotics to see if we can get this sinus/cough thing under control once and for all. After they got home and rested for a bit Renee and the boys headed up to find some new shoes for Joshua, he needs a different pair to accommodate the leg braces he will get on Thursday when they remove his cast. They managed to find a nice pair that Joshua liked and then headed for home. Tonight was game 5 so we all huddled around the tele to watch the Bolts play in Boston. The game was another nail biter but they lost in the end, now it is back to Tampa for game 6. We will continue to pull for our Bolts and hope for the best on Wednesday.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Dingledots on Boston!!! The Bolts will prevail at home because you will be close by to root them on.

Sorry to hear about the lingering cough. While I dislike your getting another round of antibiotics, I sure hope they do the trick and send that cough scurrying.

Two more days to "no cast" day!

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
