Good Numbers

Ben's numbers are great and his back continues to heal so all will go forward tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be a long day starting with a spinal tap in the morning. After that procedure is complete we will then move down to the Infusion Center so that Ben can receive Cytarabine (ARA-C) and Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan). We have the Infusion Center room booked for 10 hours but I certainly hope we won't need it that long! He will also receive the Cytarabine on Friday, Saturday and Sunday but those should be much shorter days - we will probably only be there for about 3 hours.

We received some amazing news today. Due to the fact that it usually takes about a week or so before the chemo really starts making his numbers go down there is a chance Ben might be able to go to school for a couple of days next week. As long as Ben is feeling good and strong he can get in a few more days of school. This was such a wonderul surprise. We walked out of the hospital smiling from ear to ear!
