ANC 800

Since our last post:

We've passed a seasonal sinus cold to each other and luckily Colin never came down with a fever so we were able to avoid an emergency clinic/ER visit.

Maddie is officially walking and is into everything (literally) including the one kitchen cabinet that is not locked.
Today Colin had his routine appointment and his counts remain good with an ANC level of 800. Despite a later than normal appointment, Colin carried on his regular clinic routine by taking the long way to the exam room so he could stock up on books to read while waiting. Judy the volunteer saved the day again by taking Maddie for a much needed walk so Mommy could talk to the nurse and doctor without interruption. Once done, Colin insisted he play at the activity table with the other kids.

Colin will receive a spinal tap at his next appointment in two weeks. In the mean time, we'll enjoy the weather and continue to have fun!

As Colin continues to do well Colin's Crew is planning a series of fundraisers to benefit foundations that have assisted our family. The first is Colin's Walk for Childhood Cancer this Saturday the 16th. Come walk with us any time between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. at the Linear Trail in Wallingford (Rte 150). Scavenger hunt, face painting and touch a truck for the kids. Rain or shine. All proceeds will benefit the Kacey Rose Foundation.
