Two more left!!!

Treatment today!  We are getting soooo close to the end!! Ty made most of a frog craft before the game cart came rolling in.  The room we were in is in the middle of an uplift.  There have been lots of changes at PCH lately...not sure when they changed from PCMC to PCH?  They built a huge new addition across the street and added a giant lobby to the main hospital and we finally got to see some of the great additions today.  It looks great!
 His treatment was just Vincristine and they had it all ready at once today so he didn't get to play Lego Batman 2 quite as long as he wanted.
 The ice cream shop is back!!!  Last time we were there it was under construction, now it is back and in the new lobby.  Ty was so happy to get his superman flavored ice cream!
 This one is a better view of what some of the lobby looks like
 We chilled in the lobby for a while so the pharmacy could get Ty's meds ready.  While we were there Ivy the Therapy Dog came to visit, and a new one we haven't seen before named Betsy.  We had fun petting them while their owners got some lunch.
 The new fountain...it didn't have any coins in it so we didn't throw any in.  Throwing coins in the fountain used to be one of Ty's favorite traditions...we haven't seen the horsey anywhere in their new construction so I'm not sure if we can still call it Horsey Doctor.
When we got to Grandpa's house to pick up little sis there were a few fuzzy friends waiting for us.  Ty's counts are a little low so I'm not sure how smart it is to cuddle with baby geese but how could we resist?  Stats for the day:  Weight  20.7 kg  (45.5 lbs)  Height  108.2cm.  WBC 1.5 low, HCT 35.3, RBC 4.20, HGB 12, PLTS 231, ANC 500 !!  That's right on the border of neutropenic and holding his chemo pills that he takes at home so his onc lowered his dose of 6mp to 4 half pills and then 3 days off.  And she took him off his methotrexate.  Ty will do a CBC in 2 weeks to see where his counts are and then we will see what his dosage will be.  Hopefully they will rise a little and he can manage to stay out of the hospital in the mean time...it would be a bummer if he missed his end of the year field trips and stuff!
