Another Great Check-Up

Ben had another great check-up with the doctors. He looks and feels healthy and strong and his numbers are great.
White Blood 6.4, Hemoglobin 14.1, Platelets 189,00 and ANC 3712. Ben is now off the antibiotics and the only remaining medication is for his gallstones everyday which the doctors have indicated they might take him off in 3 months. All in all things are going great!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are now gearing up for the holidays and Winter Break!

Well, it has been two whole months since my last post. Sorry about that!

Things have been going really well. Ben and David started school and love their teachers and classes. Ben has had a few colds which have put us a little on edge because there have been 2 times where we were worried he might be admitted to the hospital because of a fever...but so far so good! Despite some major tummy issues, which are probably more to do with his gallstones than anything else, all has been great. Ben's numbers have been fantastic and they have told us that the antibiotics will be stopping shortly so all that he will need to take is a daily pill for the gallstones.

Both boys have started playing flag football. Ben is on the Sea Hawks and David is on the Jets. They are both really enjoying themselves. The season is almost over so we will probably be signing back up for hockey, although Ben has expressed an interest to try out lacrosse so we will have to see what the schedule is going to allow.

All in all life is truly returning to normal!
