And He's Climbing

Tyler went in to the doctor for a blood draw on Wednesday this week to find that his platelet count had climbed into the 90s. Whoo hoo!!! Unfortunately, his red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC) counts had fallen a bit, prompting the doctor to modify Tyler's dosage schedule for the Sprycel. He's dropped from 70mg twice a day to 110mg once a day. Hopefully he continues to experience the same great results in his platelet counts and also gets some consistency in his RBC and WBC.

He's still off from work and bummed about that, but he is keeping plenty busy around the house for now. Today he is off car shopping, so that we can replace the mini and have a car in place by the time Tyler starts working again.
