Our visit to Primary Children's today was pretty uneventful, in fact they were so fast with everything that I pretty much had to drag Ty out of there. He was a little impatient at first cause his awesome game finding dad didn't get to come this time so it took us a few minutes to get his gaming arranged. It was good to be fast and get out of there cause the last thing we want to do is spread any lingering RSV germs to any of his cancer buddies...we were careful to keep to ourselves.
Counts today: I'll put the normal range of each in parentheses. WBC 3.2 (5.5-15.5), RBC 3.61 (3.90-5.30), HGB 11.2 (11.5-13.5), HCT 34.1 (34.0-40), PLTS 390 (150-400), ANC 1200 (1500-8500) So his ANC is close to 1000 which is where they want it to be. His oral chemo is what keeps it there, and it causes the other numbers to be a little low sometimes too, but as long as he's on the right dose they don't get too low. It looks like for now he is on the right dose. Now if we can just keep the germs at bay and stay out of the hospital!! Bring on the hand sanitizer!!
On the way home we made a pit stop at a gas station and I let him pick out some candy. When we got back in the car he said as he ate his candy..."I'm okay with being sick....cause I get whatever I want when we go to the hospital" Then he giggled. CHIPS...cancer has it's privileges. :)
