Ben received Vincristine yesterday and started on his steroids for the month. All is fine, but he seemed a bit down at the hospital and didn't even want hot chocolate out of the cool new machines at the cancer center! At least by the end of the visit he started to exhibit some of his normal goofiness but the doctors and staff noticed a difference. His numbers were great (white blood count 1.8, hemogoblin 12.1, platelets 245,000 and ANC 1458) so the guess by everyone is that he is probably just tired of all of this stuff and maybe a little over tired. We are going to try to take it easy and go to sleep early...now if only we could get him to sleep in late!!
