No transfusions needed.

Scott made the clinic this morning and needed no blood or platelets transfusion. His hemaglobin was up significantly since Friday. His ANC has crept up to 425. He must reach the 750 threshold in order to be admitted on Thursday for the last nasty round of HD Methatrexate. Crossing our fingers on that one.

We did manage to get him a recumbent stationary bike. He's limited severely from being outside, but needed to get more active in some manner. One of the clinic nurses thought that would be a good idea, as it doesn't impact his back, but gets his heart rate elevated and gets him moving. Hopefully that will help him reach the 750 his needs to have the last nightmare session in the hospital. Scott also likes the bike, because it's actually got a couple of simple electronic games he can play while pedaling. What will they think of next?
