|We dropped off your 300 DVD movies today!|
|Emily, Lindsey and Rachel of the Athens High Beta Club|
met at the Grasshoper to turn in their DVD collection.
|Eli and the Monkey House.|
We had an easy day today. Just the lab draws, and quick appointments to clear him for anesthesia tomorrow. All his labs were normal. His ANC was 1500, and his platelets count was normal. He had an endocrine appointment today, which is in relation to his first treatment. They specifically deal with the affects of radiation, which he had during the first dance. They look at
thyroid function and cortisol levels, and both were normal. The growth hormone is stopped indefinitely. No reason to ask the body to grow, when it needs to concentrate on fighting cancer cells. I also asked about switching the preventative antibiotic, but the doc said that if the Septra was suppressing his ANC, it would go down to like the 200’s and never move. It has not done that, so they want to continue the use of the Septra. After those appointments, we went to the zoo because tomorrow, he will need to stay close and recover from the sedation, and Friday will be all appointments and chemo. We had two “I Spy Eli” players today, too, so that was really fun to have them come up and say hi, that they saw him on FB.
We have an early morning, so I am actually going to bed. Please, take some time out of you day to pray for Eli tomorrow. Thank you for all that you do.
