Gabey D. is our wonderful firstborn son. He was diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) in May 2007, and has been going through a 3 1/2 year chemo treatment. We are trusting God, and believe He will show Himself Mighty.

Today's appointment

Today's appointment went very well. It was over really quickly. All they had to do was take some blood samples, and then give him his vincristine (chemo).
His numbers were down a tad from last week, but he's still over 500, so we're really thankful for that. The Dr. said that it's not a surprise, and that this may be the lowest we see his counts, since he's in the middle of the induction.

The decadron (steroid that acts like a chemo) is taking a toll on him. He's ravenous all the time, and pretty cranky. I'm so glad Jeff goes with us to the appointments, he was really upset when they were canulating (putting the needle in his metiport). He's numb, and didn't feel anything, but he still freaked out a bit.

Next Thursday, we get to go in the afternoon for his vincristine, it will be another quick easy appointment. Wooohoo!!

This photo is on my main blog, but I thought you might like seeing Gabey's goofy face. He loves cheetos, and says "Woweee" after each one. :)
