Bo’s ANC (Absolute Neutrophil Count)—a type of white blood cell that fights against infection—jumped to 200 today! We can’t believe it! They were 70 on Saturday, 90 yesterday, and 200 today. All of his other blood counts are also looking great, and his care team let us know that we could potentially be headed home […]

We received the results of Bo’s spinal MRI, and they are clear! Obviously that is the desired result, however, it does not explain why there are a few blasts still appearing in his CSF.

It’s been a quiet few days around here, which has been nice. Bo is still stable and responding well to his treatments. We have seen an increase in his nausea the last few days, and we have concluded that we weaned him off the nausea meds a little too early, so he is back on […]

Today has been hard. Although we are officially done with this first round of chemo, we are seeing how hard this stuff is on his little body. Bo is feeling miserable and it’s been heartbreaking to watch. He is vomiting regularly and battling constant nausea. They have made him more comfortable with some stronger pain […]

Bo had a pretty good day today. Still some nausea and vomiting, but his energy is coming back and we had some good smiles 🙂 We received the results of his spinal tap from Friday, and it was CLEAR! If the results from tomorrow’s and Friday’s are both clear, we can stop doing twice weekly […]
