More Updates

We made it back from Utah in time for many doctor appointments. One of which was Kate's monthly chemo treatment plus antibiotic and IVIG transfusions. Her ANC today was 930 and the rest of her counts were very good. The best news of all was that her lumbar puncture was perfectly clean today. There were no bad or "atypical" cells at all, so that fleeting worry has been put to rest.
There was nothing different about the procedure for this treatment than the last but Kate was very nauseous and sick for it. I never cease to be amazed at how quickly she bounces back from her sickness though. She was pretty much feeling well the next day and wanted to go to the pool. She is happily enjoying the last 2 weeks of her summer before beginning the big 1st grade!
