We had a very long day at clinic yesterday, but all went well and we were able to come home. Robert's white counts are very low, and will stay that way for a little while. This mandates that we be extremely germ conscious. His red counts were also low, so he received a blood transfusion as well. It's amazing how a bag a blood can bring his color, energy and spirits back so quickly. This new, stronger round of chemo is making him sicker than the previous, but we are all celebrating the fact that there are no shots at home this week.
