Last Week of School

This week is the last week of school for Colby & Nicholas. We are so excited for the boys to finish this week and start summer vacation. I can reflect back in Nov. 08 when I was signing Nick up for kindergarten. He was dx in Oct. 08 and I was not sure if he would make it to kindergarten come Sept. I had the option of signing him up for half or full day. I originally planned on sending him full day but of course ended up signing him up for half day. Definitely a good choice, given the circumstances. He missed quite a few days this year but we know he is a very smart kid. We believe he has excelled in kindergarten and is now ready for 1st grade. We always have in the back of our minds side effects, especially ones from radiation. We will be taking him back to neuro psychologist sometime this summer for an evaluation. I really do not have much concerns for today, I believe he is right on course for his age.
His counts are good this week and the doctor has decided not to change his 6mp or Methotrexate dose for this cycle. He received Vincristine, Meth., 6mp and steroids. Yep, another steroid week.
WBC: 4.6
Red blood cells and Plts: normal
APC: 2,500

Take Care, Karen
