Two More

Chase’s counts are finally recovering from his last round of chemo!  Yesterday evening, we received word from the hospital that he has been cleared to come in on Monday.  His levels aren’t exactly where they should be, but are very close.  It is our hope that his Monday labs will reveal he’s fully recovered and that he can be admitted for the week.  We don’t hope this because we love chemo, but because Chase only has two chemo cycles left!  …and then he’s done!!

We would so appreciate your prayers as these last rounds are, in many ways, the most difficult.  The protocol doesn’t change, but his body is exhausted and each round seems to take it’s toll quicker and more painfully than the last.

Moment by moment.

Labs And Colors

Usually, I would only post this on Chase’s Facebook page (and it’s actually up there too – apologies for the double time), but he was just so cute, I had to share on the blog as well.  Chase loves the White Sox and makes a point of taking his special baseball (and as much gear as I’ll let him take) everwhere he goes…even into the MRI machine!  Every Thursday is a lab day and this morning, Chase refused to do his labs until he was properly suited up with his “gear”.
