Making the cut

Scott's ANC just made the cut today in the low-800's. A full load of Vincristine on the day. That's a first in some time. His methatrexate and 6mp doses for this cycle will be 80%.

It is a relief that his counts are reacting normally, especially with the delays of December. An even bigger relief since Scott was a bit coughy and sneezy for the last week. We were certain he was fighting off a bit of a bug, and that would have his counts below the 750 threshold this week - setting off another cycle of delays.

We'll take the day as "good", as it came with no new hurdles or complications.

Now I'm off to help Derry with math, even though he hates it.

Great news! Let's hope you continue this "winning streak."

Don't hate math, Derry. It's easy to hate the methods by which it's taught these days - surely designed by morons - but math itself is fabulous. Pro hockey salaries have lots of zeros. You'll want to know how to keep track of every one. ;)

Lots of love to you all.
