All about counts

A month ago Colin received his monthly IV chemo and we were very surprised when his blood results came back with an ANC of 3400 which is well over the 500-1500 range. At that point we began his oral chemo at 50%. This week we were back at Yale for a routine blood check and we're happy to report Colin's counts are coming down nicely ... his ANC is 1900 so he's nearing the range. Our next visit to Yale will be right before Christmas when he'll receive his next LP, chemo and you guessed it, the start of steroid week!

We hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! As we celebrated this year, we reflected on all the things we're thankful for and the list is endless but most of all we're thankful for life and all the little moments we cherish.
