It truly is a wonder drug!! After taking the GCSF injections for 4 days, Kevin's cell counts are back WNR and he is feeling good!! It is totally amazing to me how fast the count can plummet without the medication and how fast the injection brings them back up. Kind of reminds me of caramel (it can cure all of the world evils). Now all is set for 3 days inpatient at Mpls Children's this w/e.
We had a call from Kevin's oncology nurse today for the final arrangements (which, alas, doesn't include any caramels). Kevin needs to be there by 8am on Friday, so I'm hoping the roads and traffic won't be too horrendous since snow is in the forecast. I'll be hitting rush hour morning traffic going down. Since Dick has to work on Friday night, I'll take Kevin to the hospital and come back late Friday evening. Then Dick and I'll go back on Saturday morning until Sunday late afternoon discharge.
Keep Kevin in your prayers this w/e!
