Another infusion week down

Scott got his IV vincristine and doxorubicin yesterday. His ANC was up to 900 and everything else was okay in his blood work. That is the next to last doxorubicin. The dose he gets in 3 weeks will be the last dose he ever gets in his lifetime. This is regardless of whatever may happen in the future. That's a double-edged sword. Good it is done. Scary as hell that he's had as much as any doctor will allow in his lifetime due to its toxicity.

Such are the train of thoughts going through this.

The doctors have said it is okay for Scott to go back to school.

We tend to disagree. His counts drop below 500 during every cycle of treatment. The very same docs won't release a kid from the hospital with a count below 500. Yet it is okay for him to trot off to the largest breeding ground for bugs/colds, etc in the same condition? I'm a logical guy, and no type of logic works with those parameters.

Long story short, Scott will be home schooled this year.
