hey guys! I got a msg from Colton asking about the little guy (thanks for thinking about him!!) and I realized I haven't updated y'all for a while.
Andrew is doing ok. His scans, after two cycles of chemo, look great and classify officially as a Rapid Early Responder. So, we only have 2 more cycles to go. That's the wonderful good news!
Not so good news. He got sick this week and spiked a 103.4 fever on Thurs. So instead of starting chemo yesterday, as was planned, we are waiting for his white blood counts to come up. They're creeping! Hopefully, they'll be up enough overnight taht he can start tomorrow. We're so tired of being in the hosp., so please pray especially hard tonight for a significant increase in his blood counts. The other requirement, fever free for 24 hrs, was reached last night. That and the positive scan results are huge answers to prayer!
On the fun side, he has received some special attention from Nick Johnson and Jay Bergmann! He was absolutely thrilled. No, it wasn't a personal visit, but mail and gifts aren't too bad! :wink:
Well, I need to run. I'm home to shower and regroup before I go back for Night 4 of Hotel Fairfax Hospital. Hopefully only 2 more nights after this!
Thanks, Colton and all of you!!
