Scott & Sunny

Thursday, February 7, 2008


All went well this morning and we could go ahead with another full dose of the lovely vincristine. His counts were a little lower than I was hoping for but nothing peculiar thankfully.
Anc -> 1327
wbc -> 2.2 (normal 4.5 - 13)
hgb -> 12.6(normal 12 - 16)
plt -> 245 (normal 150 - 450)
His biliruben was 1.2 (normal 0.2 - 1.2). Very pleased with this result as the bili was what was screwing up the dosage for so long. Nice to see it at a decent level for a change.
Scott also had IV methotrexate and his monthly breathing treatment, pentadamine. This was his second dose of pentadamine and Scott found it much harder to do than last month, he was coughing and spluttering, his eyes were watering, he was white as a ghost. We had a bucket handy but fortunately he didnt need it and managed to get through the session. He felt very ill for a while and still has a dry throat and cough but is looking a lot better than he did a few hours ago. As you can see from my awesomely proffesional home movie ,Springsteen cheered him up with a bit of a wash after we got back from the hospital.
We also start the steroids again today and the 6mp every night.
Well, well, gotta go, "time for tea", said Zebedee.
Oh and before I go, please look in on Mathew and wish him well. I was very pleased to be able to see him for 10 minutes this morning before he had surgery. Considering what the poor little guy has been through lately he looked very well and had a big smile on his face. He's a bobby dazzler for sure!!

glad clinic went smoothly this am. And as for the springsteen video - cats have really rough toungues and his head must have been sore - perhaps he'll work with lions when he grows up!!
love and hugs

Yeah good to know the clinic visit went OK and Scott didn't need to use the bucket!
Also great news about Mathew on his site tonight. Thank goodness he's not in so much pain and the op was a success.
Take care and watch out for a hairball anytime soon from Springsteen!
With love,
