Clinic Chronicles, Delayed Intensification, Day 15,56

Maren is 1/4 of the way through with DI!!!

Clinic went fine yesterday. Maren got her treatments with no problem and we were actually out of there in less than 2 hours. Her ANC was 800, and her platelets were 156,000. Dr. Randy said this was on the low end of normal for this stage. I'm guessing her ANC will go back up because she started her steroids again yesterday, so that ought to give her a little boost for the week.

Elijah B. turned 4 yesterday. We had a fun dinosaur-themed day, and I think he loved every minute of it. I felt bad having to leave him to go to clinic on his birthday, but luckily Grandma was here and the Birthday Bird (I'll explain later) came, so I don't think he even missed me. I'll post pictures later today.
