Chemo6 Coming Up

It's been 21 whole days since Max's last chemo and he's due for #6! We were hoping to get him checked in March 1, but the Doctor wants to wait a few days to make sure his blood counts stay up. Max received red blood and platelets last week and his counts were great today, however, because he's further into his treatment his bone marrow has a harder time manufacturing his blood. One of the nurses said, "once the kids get further into treatment their bone marrow just gives up and yells Uncle!" So we have to expect delays!

We hope to check-in on Thursday!
