Clinic and delays.

The kids and I went to clinic this morning to get labs drawn. I had hoped that we could discontinue the neupogen shots and get confirmation that we were on track to admit on Friday, but Watts' ANC had other plans. It is 100, nowhere near the 750 needed to begin next chemo round, and expected to possibly still drop down to 0. The doctor isn't concerned at all but chemo will definitely be delayed till Monday at the earliest but most likely till Wednesday. . .which, just happens to be our moving day. I had been joking that I wanted to be admitted during the move but I did not actually mean it!

Our life is a little funny these days.

So, it looks like this week will be more isolated time at home. I'll keep sanitizing our way through the house, gasping at every sneeze, and pressing my palm up to foreheads, but also loving that we are not in a hospital, Watts is infection-free, and that he seems to be coming alive these days. He is babbling, trying to stand, and making the funniest facial expressions.He has such a fun personality emerging!

I could eat him up, I love him so.


  1. Oh, my goodness, I could eat him up! What a funny little guy!

  2. His expressions in these pictures remind me so much of the sweet and silly pictures Piper takes! Love them :)
