Monday morning update

Watts' ANC is even lower today so they are doing cultures to see if he has an infection in his blood stream. Platelets are still good so Dr Buckley said that at this point he isn't concerned about the low-count being from lurking leukemia cells. He thinks that the low ANC is simply from a virus/infection that Watts picked up. Watts' still has a low-grade fever off and on, some slight nasal drainage, and diarrhea, but over all has handled all of this like a champ.

I am so relieved that the platelets have stayed up, that I am not even bemoaning the fact that we're no where closer to going home.  Perspective is always a game-changer for me. We'll see how I'm feeling in a few hours...

Right now I'm thankful for:

Great platelet numbers.

Breakfast with Piper this morning.

Daisies from our house brightening up the room (thanks, Mom!).


A hard-working husband.

Blue sky breaking through the gloomy clouds outside the window.

A jolly little guy (despite feeling crappy).
