Good Numbers Again

We went to the hospital after hockey camp yesterday for a blood check and Vincristine. Ben was a trooper as usual and the blood test results came back great. His hemoglobin is 13, platelets are at 234,000 and ANC is 4100. The numbers are so good that they increased his dosage of Mercaptapurine (the medicine he takes every night) by 25%.

The boys had the last full day of hockey camp today. Ben was worried his energy might be too low to do all of the activities but he stuck it out and didn't miss anything. I let the counselors and coaches know his concerns in the morning and they took extra special care of him out there on the ice. He had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the people from the Kings and Toyota Center for making him feel so special and making the experience so great for both boys!

Tomorrow morning they each have a big game to finish of the camp week. It should be a lot of fun.
