We have an ANC!

Andrew's absolute neutrophil count was 200 yesterday. It always makes us breathe a little easier when he has neutrophils. Interestingly enough, he has a whoppin 980,000 platelets/uL. The usual range is 150,000-400,000. Go baby!

In other news, Andrew learned that he can crawl around the apartment. He has been crawling for almost 2 months now but has always stayed on this little patch of carpet in our living room, I think because we keep him on a similar sized gym mat in the hospital. Anyway, he likes to crawl down the hallway and look back and grin at us.... then he proceeds to get into anything that he can reach (just like a good little 9mo old should ;) ).


  1. Yay Andrew! Way to go on the ANC and platelets. He is doing soooo well!

  2. Good for him. Now you get to baby proof the apt. Just wait till he's pulling himself up onto everything so he can reach more.

  3. YEA! Cant wait for you to come back! (but I know that you can!) Have fun at home.

  4. So glad to hear that he is doing so well! You will be all through with treatments before you know it! Go Andrew!

  5. Hurray! His grin is so darling in that photo Matt posted on Facebook :-) Glad you are home and enjoying his progress.
