There isn’t much to report since Ben got out of the hospital, which is a good thing, really. About the most interesting thing is that Ben is doing GCSF to boost his immune system but this was expected. The image on this post is of Ben giving himself the shot for the first time. (I’m really proud of how he’s handling this. He’s really becoming an active participant in his own treatment, just as I suspected he would.)
He also picked up a cold last week, which is one of those fun ones that lingers forever. He’s pretty congested and still hacking. His sister picked something up, too, as did his mom. So far, the animals and myself are the only ones not sick. 🙂
The plan, if it’s so much as a plan, is to do scans early in September and that will tell us if he’s going to do another round of MIBG or move onto something else.
Thanks so much for the love, prayers and support. It really does mean a lot to us all to know that we have so many friends and fellow cancer families out there supporting us.
