Still in Remission!

Andrew's still in remission!!! I'm super excited! These were his counts:

Hematocrit: 35.4 (normal 33-39)
Platelets: 313 (normal 150-400)
WBC: 5.1 (normal 6-17)
ANC: 1200 (normal 1500-8000)

I must admit that I was a tad bit worried about Andrew staying in remission these last 2 weeks. We sleep trained him at night, and then all of a sudden he was sleeping a ton more during the day. Also, there were some bruises that kept popping up on his forehead. These were things that you could easily explain as normal toddler things, like a growth spurt or more mobility, but seeing bruises will probably make me nervous for a long, long time.


  1. This is really wonderful to hear! I talked to your mom yesterday morning for a quickie visit, and she didn't say anything about Andrew, so I thought I would check the blog today. THANK YOU so much for keeping this blog.
    This little boy is such a treasure and I am so glad he's doing so well!
