Rising Counts!!!

Tyler is doing great!

He was so strong that, for the first time ever, we were allowed to use Children's Close To Home in Dublin for the blood work. In the past they have always required us to go into the hospital and have the oncology specialist do everything.

The counts look good. Everything is moving up. White count is 2.3. ANC takes a while to calculate, so we will receive that later today. At an ANC of 500 Tyler can start getting visitors. Based on the other counts, my guess is that the results will show we are there.

Once the numbers are all in, decisions will be made about the start of round 5 of chemo. I would guess early next week. Until then Tyler is home and feeling great! Thank you for all your prayers and support.

We still have a long road before us, but Tyler is winning on every level.

Score card
Tyler - 4
Cancer - 0
