Week #12

Surprisingly enough, Brayden made counts this week and was able to take his chemo!!! How his ANC doubled I have no idea, but I am so relieved to be back on track with his treatment plan. Brayden took his chemo like a champ, and did pretty well yesterday. He had a play date with a girlfriend and I got some much needed girl time.
I am disappointed to say that he is not doing nearly as well today. He has already thrown up once, and refused to drink virtually anything. He got up at 0630, laid back down at 8, and finally woke up around 11. I hope that as the day progresses he begins to feel more like eating and drinking, or I fear we will be headed back to clinic. I am scheduled to work tomorrow and granma may very well have her hands full if hes not feeling better tomorrow :)
When we were in clinic Tuesday I clarified with Dr G regarding lake water, and he agrees with our NP, absolutely no lake water. Last night on the news we saw that a bunch of swim beaches are closed due to high levels of bacteria found in the water...... So that means Brayden and I will frequent the pool instead. I guess in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter as long as he is having fun.
We hope for an uneventful end to the week and that Brayden starts feeling better soon. I have been working on getting our deck cleaned up so I can get Brayden set up with a clean area to play outside. I hope that it will be done for him by Monday, pending the weather of course.......
