A couple weeks ago Carter had to go in to the clinic unexpectedly because of a fever. It was probably just a virus. His ANC was 600, barely above the 500 cutoff for being admitted to the hospital. Phew! His fever came back later that day but thankful, they let us stay home since we had just been there a few hours before.
Last week was his monthly clinic visit for a check up and chemo. Everything went really well, except his ANC was down to 200. We're holding the oral chemo until his counts go back up. We'll go back in tomorrow to check.
And the last item of business: It's been a year since we had Carter's dragon smashing party! It was last Labor Day weekend that tons and tons of friends gathered in our backyard to watch Carter stomp on those dragons. What an awesome day that was! Here's a link to my post about it. I can hardly believe it's already been a year since Carter started maintenance. It's had it's ups and downs and Carter has learned and grown so much. I like to think we all have, but I know for sure that Carter has :). It's still hard to see the end from here because it's so far in the future, but looking back on how far we've come already is great motivation to keep on truckin. If my math is correct (ya never know), we are halfway through it all. Yay Carter!
