Blood Counts

Miss Kate is doing great. She is happy, playful and has been enjoying all of her playdates this Christmas vacation. Today brought a clinic visit for more blood counts and we found that her ANC is still low - at 500 even. Her facial rash is back and a never-ending productive cough and cold are present so perhaps that accounts for the persistently low numbers.
Next Thursday we are going to have to fly back early from Disney for a lumbar puncture and chemo as we begin the next 3 month phase of mainenance. Jason and the other two will be braving the drive home. Sorry guys! :)
Send healthy thoughts our way please and pray for a fanastic, fever free, fun time! (How's that for alliteration!)

I'm glad she is feeling good. Isn't it weird how you become so stressed about a fever? I still feel Eliza's forhead almost everyday and if she feels a little hot I get so nervous. I pray both these girls stay fever free for a LONG time! Merry Christmas. I hope 2008 is a little better for you guys.
