Ben's numbers are still extremely low. He received a platelet transfusion yesterday and hemoglobin today in addition to the antibiotics. He is totally exhausted (not surprising considering the low hemoglobin number) and frustrated that we are still having to go to the hospital on a daily basis. His white blood count is also very very low (I think the report lists it as "panic level"). As we have said before, this is all a normal side effect of the chemo but during this time he is very susceptible to infections so we continue with the food restrictions and our war against germs and bacteria!

We are doing our best to be patient because we know that at some point the numbers will go up!
