We went to clinic this afternoon, and fortunately his ANC level did not drop; however it is still 200, which is not the 750 we need to start next round.  The plan for now is to check him again next Thursday, and hopefully he will be 750 or higher. He would have the lumbar puncture …

Learning new words

No new updates over the weekend, levels the same and still has a cold keeping him on precautions so he’s stuck in this room. Nonetheless, he’s still learning some new words and trying to find ways to play in his new environment. He sits on the couch and (with help) climbs up to the window …
