Good Stuff

Colin has been doing well over the past 3 weeks. Last week his counts were within the range with his ANC at 1300 and he received his monthly chemo. Back next week for recheck and to see if his meds can be increased.

We have also been busily researching preschools in hopes that Colin will be able to attend in the fall. We decided on one today. Colin took an instant liking to the teachers and activities available and the staff was very understanding of the anticipated breaks in attendance. All in all, it was an easy decision.

On Saturday, a friend hosted a golf tournament for Colin which was awesome! The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time! A big shout out to Dawn and her sister Arlene along with all the volunteers who helped the day go off without a hitch.

We've also had some weekend activities with other oncology families. The first was a sail on the Quinnipiac Schooner sponsored by R.A.C.E. We had a great time despite Maddie's horror of the boat/water. She must have screamed for the first hour. Most recently we attended The Dirty Socks concert (they're a Nickelodeon Band) and the tides shifted and Maddie had a great time however Colin was very hesitant but all in all it was a great afternoon out.
