Chemo Day

Quick update...
Today Colin received his monthly IV chemo (vincristine) and started the week of steroid. After his treatment, he ran around, handing out home made carmel popcorn to all the doctors and nurses. He even gave a few lucky ones a hug! We actually have to go back because we ran out .. guess we underestimated how many wonderful people take care of our brave boy. Colin's counts are good! ANC is 2,000 which is higher than the range they like him to be (ANC 500-1500) but nothing to be concerned about. The Doctor's will monitor and adjust meds in a few weeks if his counts remain high. It is normal to increase dose periodically during this stage.

Just like clock work Colin took a super long nap today and developed dark circles under his eyes but Daddy ended the day with a special treat. He packed us all up for a nice cozy ride through the fantasy of lights in New Haven.

Colin, Maddie and Mommy continue to fight off a cold while we prepare for Santa. So another lazy day tomorrow to help kick it.

Thanks for checking in on us!
