Blood Counts on the Rebound

It's been a couple of days ... our weekend was full of family fun. Friday started with a visit to the hospital for a routine blood check. Colin's blood count is starting to improve so Mommy and Daddy were relieved. Maddie played with Aunt Liesl in the morning and later that afternoon Auntie Courtney came over to play. Uncle Jack is finally feeling better so he came straight over once in town (he came home from school for the weekend). This is the first time Uncle 'god father' Jack was able to spend time with Colin since Colin was diagnosed. They played and read lots of stories. The night was full of family love ... Gigi, Grampy, Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Courtney and Uncle Jack all stayed through dinner.

As the treatments go on Colin is getting more tired and clingy so we spent most of Saturday and Sunday snuggling!

Today, Colin received what we hope may be his final chemo treatment for this phase and wore his new scrubs which he was very excited about. All the nurses said Dr. Colin is sooo cute in scrubs. A big thanks to the crew at Waymark Associates! What an awesome gift! Colin's blood counts are still on the increase :) Erica from Child Life was able to pull some magic and coordinated a visit from Zoe the volunteer dog.

Maddie started the day with Gigi and then Grandma and Grandpa relieved her. Grandma and Grandpa were able to spend some quality time with Colin reading and playing before he headed off for a much needed nap.

Next routine blood check on Friday and then spinal tap and bone marrow test next Tuesday.
