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

To commemorate 200 years since the birth of Darwin the Royal Mail issued these postage stamps today. My mother is now running around the Isle of Wight trying to track down 1st day covers for me. Go Mom!
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.
