No More Scab!!!

 His scab looked like it was hanging by a thread yesterday.  Saturday night when he was asleep we peeked under it.  It looked a lot like it was attached to the lip by a vein so we thought he must have developed a pyogenic granuloma under there.  We were thinking we'd have to go in today and have his scab cut off and that vein cauterized.
Still on vancomycin. 
 We had a great time yesterday at a picnic where we met Mike Evans who is running across the state of Idaho in June to raise money for local kids fighting cancer.  He is planning to run 50 miles a day!!! You can see his blog "Mike's Extra Mile" by clicking HERE.  You can see more information about the Tenley Foundation and our awesome cancer buddies on the IdahoFighters blog by clicking HERE
His giant scab fell off in the night!! Woo Hoo! That means it wasn't a pyogenic granuloma after all.  Yahoo!
 We went to the doc anyway cause Ty needed a CBC and I think they still wanted to check on him.  They were going to see what they needed to do about his lip...the scab fell off just in time!
We were there for a long time waiting for CBC results and for the doc to talk to his oncologist at Primary Children's so Ty and Merin took turns spinning on the doctor chair and then trying to walk.  His counts are up a little from the last CBC which surprised us!  WBC 2.7, RBC 3.28, HGB 9.1, HCT 28.5, PLT 139, ANC 999!  So we go to his appointment tomorrow and he starts up on chemo and steroids again.  It will be a pretty long day cause he has an eye doctor appointment, a chest CT scan, and clinic scheduled.  Whew!  Going to have a farewell giant scab party today!
