|Austin's Thursday Chemo|
Don't get me wrong! I am very grateful that Austin feels so good! When people ask me how he is doing, I have nothing to say other than that he is great. That is just fine with me. It's just a new way of thinking for me.
The last month has gone quickly as we have been very busy with the end of the school year activities. Usually a mom is bummed about school getting out for the summer, but this Mom is thrilled. It has been a very tough year and I need a break. I am so proud of Austin for making it through this year and completing 3rd grade. Back in the fall when Austin missed so much school I wasn't sure he would make it. I was worried he would get too far behind and have to be held back a year. I credit Austin's amazing teachers for being understanding and helping Austin catch up when he was absent. It doesn't hurt that Austin is an excellent student and of course I think he is absolutely brilliant (but I may be a little biased).
Today Austin had his monthly checkup and CBC. His ANC was 1200, the same as it was a month ago. His Hematocrit was 36, the highest it's been since he was diagnosed. No wonder he has so much energy! He was cleared to attend Camp Hobe in June with Madison which will be a lot of fun.
So bring on Summer! We plan on having lots of fun and thinking about Cancer as little as possible.
