6-month CBC

Our last visit was 2 weeks ago, and his counts were perfect:

Hematocrit: 36
Platelets: 356
White Count: 9.2
ANC: 3200

Andrew also got his second dose of flu vaccine that he had last month and is starting his normal vaccination schedule again this Wednesday at the pediatrician. We're going to start seeing the oncologist at 2-month intervals now, so our next checkis February.

It's incredible to watch his central line scar keep fading. I guess the smaller you are when you get it out, the more it fades.

I guess snow wasn't everything he was hoping for...

It would be about time to cut Andrew's hair, but it'll be a while before we can. It's just such a cool, novel thing for us that I want to keep it for as long as we can get away with it.
