"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
Scott & Sunny

I just checked my temp, trying to decide wether to give in to the cold/flu meds or not, and it is 101.9. I feel like someone stuck a pick axe through my spinal column, so forgive me, this is going to be brief.
Counts yesterday were good. Scott had a high anc from the steroids and a multitude of platelets. Now we just have to hope he doesnt catch the dreaded lurgy off me.
LOL...and Nana, dont tell me you didnt at least stifle a chuckle....
Scott was diagnosed with T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (T-cell A.L.L.) on 01/25/07. T-cell is an aggressive leukemia and Scott is considered a 'high risk' case. His white blood count at diagnosis was 89,000, he had a mediastinal mass and had also developed sudden and severe petechiae due to lack of platelets. There was no CNS involvement.
His chemotherapy treatment began on 1/26/07 and is a 108-week-long protocol of high dose chemotherapy, steroids and cranial radiation.
Scott is treated by Doctor Tebbi at St Joseph's Childrens Hospital in Tampa.
