No Chemo Today

UGH! I thought this would be the case today...

Max's blood counts didn't recover enough to start chemo today. His platelets are still low (even after the transfusion last week) and his ANC (combined blood count stuff) was low also. We're going to give him one GCSF shot tonight to boost his white cells and see if that doesn't lift the ANC. The platelets are on their way up so we'll just cross our fingers that they increase enough to get started on Thursday.

On the bright side, look at Max on Sunday night. Eating crab, smiling. So while the news is sometimes grim-sounding, the reality is that Max has an amazing spirit!
