Victory Dance

It may be a little thing, but it still had us doing a victory dance this morning...

Tyler's blood test today:

WBC: 2.45
HCT: 28
PLT: 51

His hematocrit climbed from 26% to 28% and his platelets climbed from 34 to 51 over the weekend. Tyler's counts have not improved like that in two months, so we are thrilled to see a hint that the Tasigna is working! We are getting another blood test tomorrow to make sure this test wasn't an aberration, but we were sure happy to see that Tyler is making his own blood again!

Tests are down to a minimum this week, with only Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon appointments scheduled. With luck, our schedule will stay light for the next couple of weeks until Tyler's therapeutic dose.

Happy Labor Day to all!
