Here we go!

Watts' counts are up! His ANC is 967 (only needed to be 750 to get back on treatment). I did a happy dance in the doctor's office, let out a sigh of relief, and then immediately resumed my normal stance of hating treatment and setting my sights on the next long break (at least, what was my normal stance prior to this long break). After all, you can't stay excited about starting back on HD Methatrexate for very long.

So, I'm waiting for the final word from Brenner, but Watts should be getting a lumbar puncture with chemo first thing tomorrow morning followed by 3-4 days of HD Methotrexate and Leucovorin (the rescue drug).

We are thankful that Watts' counts have recovered but also appreciate prayers as this has been the worst drug so far on our sweet Watts.


On a different note, we got to see with my big brother today. We visited, the kids' vied for Caleb's attention, and we celebrated Watts' high(er) counts by eating lunch at Sticks and Stones.


  1. Great news. I love the idea of a happy dance. These are sweet photos! Let me know if you need any help. I miss my Piper time.

  2. Wonderful news! I'm glad that you've had some "normal" time in the midst of your storm. Think God in His grace knew exactly what your family needed! Praying that Watts' little body will better tolerate this go round on this chemo drug...
