September 30, 2015

Back at the clinic this morning for BJ's exam. After BJ's lab results came back, Dr. Kaplan was pleased to see that he still does not have any leukemia showing up in his blood stream. We don't know what his bone marrow looks like and there is no plan to do another bone marrow biopsy at this time. His platelet level held on from the transfusion Monday and he didn't need a blood transfusion today. His immune system level is higher today so with that, Dr Kaplan decided that BJ would get another infusion of methotrexate and vincristine. BJ is feeling ok, just very fatigued. He has slept through his IV Zofran and can sleep through his chemo infusions as well. I hope this infusion won't make him feel as bad as it did the last time! Hours after the last infusion like this, he developed a fever and was inpatient for 2 days. Hopefully we won't have a repeat of that!

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and encouragements. We are so blessed by each one.
