Maintenance Delay

Ty doesn't start maintenance tomorrow after all.  His ANC is 500!  I am super surprised cause it has been almost three weeks since his last chemo.  We were assuming he would be back to normalish right now which is why we let him go to primary yesterday.  Just goes to show you can't really have expectations with this kind of thing cause their bone marrow does what it wants and is different for every kid.  At first I was kind of freaking out cause the preliminary results before they did the manual count was 300.  My first thought was relapse...but now that I've seen the other numbers I think that isn't likely, he is just still reacting to the chemo.   HCT 33.6, WBC 2.3, HGB 11.8, PLTS 273 
We'll find out more tomorrow about when his next CBC will be and that will determine when his appointment will be.
