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.

Appointment went fine

Well, the good news is that Gabey did great for his procedure, and we were able to go home with no problems.
The bad news is that he's neutropenic again. His counts are like a roller coaster with all this chemo. His ANC is only a bit over 400.
We just have to act as if he's neutropenic even when we see that his counts are up, because they just drop so quickly.

The schedule has us off for next week. We don't have to go in at all. Then July 5th, we'll start the next phase, as long as his counts are over 750.

Pray for no fevers (because he's neutropenic, I'd have to take him in again for fevers, and he'd get admitted to the hospital.)

Also, pray that his counts are good enough on July 5th, for us to go ahead and start the next phase.
