Cycle 5 started

Counts (for chemo) were all good to start!

The gang's all here, waiting for Naaman to wake up!

Naaman fared better fasting than we imagined (Amen) but had low blood sugar when we got to clinic.  He got some sugars to boost him up and all other counts needed looked good (ANC, hemoglobin, platelets).  As always, he needed oxygen during the LP.  His daily inhaler is helping, though, because he had less trouble breathing than he usually does.

The only tricky part was some liver enzymes have spiked, so we won’t increase his chemo doses right now.  We will get a blood draw in two weeks, also.  It’s an unusual spike, but wouldn’t draw much attention if it weren’t that he had liver failure last year.  But overall, a smooth day and looking forward to chemo at home, playing with his sister. Thanks for prayer, Team Naaman!
