week delay

We went in on Monday and Carter's counts weren't quite high enough to start maintenance.  White blood cell count was 700 and ANC was 300 (it needs to be 750).  Hemoglobin 8.2 and platelets 278,000 (needs to be 75,000, so that one was no problem)  Oh well, we have another full week of no medicine.  The doctor told me that it's not uncommon at all to be delayed like this before maintenance.  Carter just came off of a really tough round with lots of chemo so his counts are just not there yet.  So we are enjoying our week of freedom before more drugs.
