All is Great!

We went in for Vincristine and a blood check today. All is great! I am kind of glad that we didn't know that Ben's numbers were quite low last week (Poly at 633 and white blood count at 1.5) but the good news is that they are now terrific. White blood count 3.6, Poly 2459, Hemoglobin 12.5 and Platelets are 214,000. We feel good that we took so many precautions with the boys like having them sleep in separate rooms.

Ben still needs to finish out the Tamiflu but David is past the contagious phase of the flu so we can relax. Now we just need to prepare ourselves for the lovely steroid part of the month which started today. Hopefully they won't be too tough on him this month.

Only 2 more weeks until Ben's birthday. I can't believe he is going to be 9!
