Biopsy Next Friday, Doing Good For Now

Our Jack is back, full of energy, his color is back and most importantly, he is happy, running around and laughing!

He got platelets on Monday and a unit of blood on Tuesday. He's off fluid, but the doc added 3 more Neupogen shots. Labs came back and his counts are still recovering. Slowly but surely they'll come up. 

The plan is for another surgery next Friday (this will be #5)  - another bone marrow biopsy and they are removing his port. The central line is staying put and he will have that throughout the rest of his treatment. Should be a quick one, in and out on the same day. 

Lots more appointments in the next few weeks, but I'm not thinking of those today - one day at a time.

We need to bulk Jack up a bit, he has lost a little weight, but nothing dramatic. What's on the menu -  lots of good fats, carbs and protein. He ate pretty good today - so we're moving in the right direction.

I'm thankful for:
- Jack's energy level is on its way back. Maybe a Nerf war in the next day or so.
- not living on the east coast, brrrrr.
- popcorn. One of our favorite snacks around here. I like white with just salt, Chase is a butter lover fan, Jack loves the carmel and Tibor is game for any flavor. We just discovered Just Pop'd Popcorn on the north side of town. We give it two thumbs up!
