Breaking through the Glass Ceiling

Tyler's blood counts on Saturday morning proved that he has broken through his glass ceiling.  His total white blood cell count (WBC) was 1.0 and over half of those were neutrophils (ANC)!  With a ANC of more than 500, Tyler is less at risk for major infections.  He gets to drop two of his antibiotics, so he has fewer pills to take.

There isn't too much change other than that, but we are celebrating by taking a 3 day weekend!


  1. Way to go, Tyler! Hope you enjoy the 3 day weekend :) Hugs... -Erin

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your journey! I've been reading your older posts of what you guys have been through. I'm so sorry you've had to go through this & praying they find a treatment that works! Gleevec was a huge leap in the right direction, but there's so much more progress that needs to be made for those that it doesn't work for. So far Gleevec is working for my husband, but he's not in cytogenetic remission yet, hopefully next time! My thoughts and prayers are with you!
