In light of the snow delay for school (more for the cold temps here than actual accumulation), Deanie got to play hooky and come to clinic with Cheeky. Donned in her Elsa dress, and he in his Avengers pajamas, they enjoyed some snacks and Barbie movies during chemo.
Counts were “good” ( aka no transfusions needed) and we will go back Monday to check his levels again. Thursday more chemo. Right now, we just check counts to see if he needs blood or platelets, and Day 29, counts matter to see if he can keep going for the second half of Delayed Intensification. (Today is Day 8 of Delayed Intensification, for anyone keeping tabs.)
Stay warm! When the snow clears, go give blood. Lots of blood drives have been cancelled or saw decreased numbers with this arctic blast. Check www.redcross.org! And if you need incentive, $10 gift cards for donors right now. 🙂
