Still Great!

Ben is still feeling great and having a wonderful time at school. He had a check-up yesterday and a blood draw without the PICC line so had to have it done the old fashioned way. Although he was very nervous, he was also very brave and all went smoothly. Best of all, Ben's blood looks great and should have a week off until his spinal tap and chemo next week. There was talk about possibly putting in a new PICC line next week as he will be out for the spinal but after further review it looks like he won't need the new one until about mid-October when he starts the next phase of treatment (Delayed Intensification). It will be nice to have the line out for a couple of more weeks - just makes life a little easier. We will take what we can get!
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have been a bit under the weather so have been trying to rest as much as possible to get better quickly. I am hoping that the next few weeks we will just be posting about normal things like going to school and playing with friends. We will get back to the serious stuff in October.
