Clinic Day

All clean and ready for clinic!
 As usual...Ty didn't even flinch when they accessed his port....he was in the zone.
 Ty got a present from Legos for Leukemia at clinic today!  What a great surprise!  Those legos were collected and donated by a kid who survived cancer and wants to give back. 
 He actually stopped his xbox game to play with the legos for a few minutes.  He got to play longer than normal today because Ty's normal doc wasn't in so it took a while for someone else to see us.  Usually Ty doesn't feel like he got enough game playing in cause his doc is so prompt so we aren't there for very long.  We sure love his doc!
Everything looked great!  His weight is up a little 18.8kg, (41lbs!), and he seems to be growing like a weed, 102.2cm.  His ANC jumped back up to 1200 which is close to where they want it so his meds stay the same.  Other counts: WBC 3.2, RBC 3.79, HGB 11.0, PLTS 267. As usual everything is a little lower than a normal kid would be except platelets but everything is where it is expected to be for him. 
 He decided that from now on every time we go to clinic he is going to pick a cookie out of the vending machine. 
I forgot to post in March that he taught himself to ride his bike with no training wheels.  He zooms up and down the street now on a regular basis.  Thanks for checking in! There is always that little feeling of nervousness going to clinic hoping all of the news there will be good news and then we drive home feeling relieved that everything is fine and he gets to keep being 'normal'.  Here comes steroid week....yeeeehaaaaaa!
