Scott & Sunny

Thursday, August 2, 2007


Scott had another nice clinic visit this week. David took him in about 7.30am, he had a finger prick then back home by just after 9am. No leg shots or chemo. Next week if his bloodwork is okay he will have another shot of doxorubicon and vincristine, then 3 weeks later his very last dox. He will have used up his lifetimes allowance of this drug, no more ever in his life. The only medication he will take today is 1 little while pill for his pox. Yay! Tomorrow we start a different pill which he will take until the end of treatment, a preventative measure against more shingles. However, this pill is blue and Scott has never had blue pills before, he isnt happy about it one little bit.

His anc this morning was 390, critical neutropenia but great all the same.
Hgb was 8.5 and platelets 166. The platelet king rides again.

glad the clinic went so well this morning and that the platelets are good. Hope the new blue pill doesn't cause any gagging problems.
Thinking of you all
