Up High!

To Amanda, anything that is over her head is "up high" which is always said with multiple exclamation points implied. (!!!!!) This is not that hard as she is only 33-inches tall. The Adriamycin was supposed to push her counts down to their lowest this weekend. She has been getting shots every night since we have been home to help fight that dip. Her ANC (ability to fight infection) today was over 15,800! If I didn't know better, I would say she is part super-hero!
We have instructions to cut the shots to every-other day and we will check again next Thursday.
Thursday will also be our meeting with the surgeon to discuss the tumor resection (cutting that sucker out of there). So, we will do what we can to enjoy our weekend and get as much laundry done as possible since Manda and I are still living out of the suitcase we took to the hospital last week.
Happy Birthday to Great Uncle Rick and our thoughts are with Great Uncle Bud this weekend. Much love to you both!

Such excellent news!!! I hope you have the chance to put your own feet up, even if it is while you are waiting for the laundry to cycle, because you've had quite a month. Enjoy your weekend!

I'm so glad she's doing well! And how sweet about the "up high!" I totally get the implied "!!!!" after that statement because my toddler also uses those implied "!!!!!" a bunch!
