More good news

I'm so happy to share that we have more good news this week from Tyler's doctor appointment. His spleen was scanned and, although we don't have the official read from Dr M, the ultrasound technician said it looked the same this week as it did when they scanned it months ago to let him come back to soccer.

On top of that he had good blood counts across the board. I think he is liking the 90mg dosage much better than his higher versions. His counts this week were:

  • White Blood Cells (WBC) = 2.9
  • Hematocrit (HCT) (part of red blood) = 30.2
  • Platelets (PLT) = 151

With those great numbers, a good spleen scan, and hopefully another week of good CBC results, we might even risk asking about when soccer could re-enter his life. Now that he is working part time, I think soccer is the biggest loss he has experienced since he moved to AML in December.

Thanks for checking in -- we'll update again after the doctor visit this week. :)
