This is a very scary issue indeed. Everything is so uncertain with cancer. Some logic explains this is caused by Bactrim. Or by a slight bug Scott's body may be fighting off. Or by a combination. One marker in his blood work was elevated, that is usually only elevated by the body battling a virus.
But all is uncertain.
Just endless worry until Monday. Nothing removes the worry. Nothing removes the fear. There is simply too many twists and turns and possible combinations of factors which can cause counts to stay low.
It a sad perspective when we sit here hoping Scott's fighting a virus. Or hoping it is just that his body can't handle the Bactrim and the schedule of chemo in maintenance and bounce back to the proper levels.
That's what happens if things are good.
Things really need to be good come Monday's tests and BMA.
A bit of a good note tonight (actually a great note, but we're a bit subdued here). Scott's buddy Pat won the Viewer's Choice CNN Heroes Award. It was on live tonight. We're very happy for Pat. Scott was quite excited when they said he'd won.
