Clinic Day

The weekend turned out to be great. Nick came home around 5pm Friday night. I gave tubs to Colby & Tom before Nick arrived and warned the boys it was going to be family night and we were staying inside. Greg & I felt Nick really needed one more night trying to stay germ 'free'. Nick agreed only if I let him play outside on Sat. and so that day Nick enjoyed hanging out with our neighbors. The Love family came over Sat. night for dinner and more playtime. Sunday, Nick headed over to Michael's and swimming. It was great to hear he finally put his DS down and got some exercise in.
Today we are at clinic. Nick just fell asleep and he is receiving the Pentimidine and IVIG. They pre-treat his IVIG with Tylenol and Benadryl and he is also on Zofran (anti-nauseau). It is amazing how much medicine, chemo and pre-treats he receives in one day. He is scheduled for Methotrexate (chemo) if his ANC is high enough.

Counts just came back:
WBC: 2.5
RBC: 8.8
APC: 1,200
ANC: around 400

He is still considered 'neutropenic' so they are holding his chemo today. We will just start another cycle next week. In this phase of Nick's treatment we do not make up any week he misses chemo, we just move on. Karen
