Thursday Measurements & labs

This week the tumor measures 14.5x17cm. That's smaller, folks!

Wahoo!!!! We're heading in the right direction. In two weeks he will have his last treatment of this type of chemo. They are lowering the total dose, but still giving it over the same amount of time.

Monday's labs (awesome):
WBC 1.9
ANC 1.3
Hematocrit 38.5
Platelets 180

Thursday's labs (also pretty awesome):
WBC 2.1
ANC 1.2
Hematocrit 35.1
Platelets 154

For an explanation of these numbers go here.

Since his numbers are so good, we don't need to do blood draws any more, unless he seems sick.

His hair is coming in so fast, I swear you can see it growing right before your eyes.
