Testing to see if we start our last round of "Hard Chemo"

We go in to check Cameron's blood to see if his ANC# (resistance to infection) is high enough to start our last round of the "Hard Chemo".  If he passes his blood test here we go....bring on the steroids for 21 days!! He plumped up pretty fast last time! He is going to get HUGE this time since he will be on them longer than last time. He will also get Vincristine(the mean to his knees med), Doxorubicin(drops his ANC# bigtime & colors his tinkle red) and a spinal tap with Methotrexate put in his spine(kills the cancer hiding in his spinal fluid). That is just what he gets this week! Then he has to go back in 4or 5 days to get another chemo that takes all day to complete. We get that every week until day 29 then it is a whole new variety of Chemo after that. Here comes the scary low immune system too. I plan to hide in our house as much as possible for the next 2 months.   It is amazing how they have just the right combo to hit this with every tool they have! Off we go!!!  :)
