If it is possible, his numbers went down AGAIN!!!! UH! The one piece of good news is that he had his last dose of Tylenol at 6:00 p.m. last night. Over the course of the night, Grant had a temp around 100.5. Then, this morning at 4:00 a.m. it dropped to 98.5 and seems to be stabalizing there! I pray that it continues to stay low! If it does, all we have to worry about next his his numbers coming up. I am waiting for the final numbers for this morning that will tell me what his ANC is, but I expect it to be 0 based on his white cell count.

I am in a better mood today. I guess I just needed to regroup and put myself in a better place for the sake of my family. This morning Grant was not in a good way and I was determined to make him smile and get him out of this room. He seems to like it when I attempt to dance. It makes him laugh! So, I have been doing a lot of dancing this morning. We took a walk around upstairs and played a little soccer in the halways. He liked that a lot. His legs seemed a little weak. I am not sure if that is because of muscle weakness or because he is not eating. I'll keep working with him today.

Thanks for all of your prayers. They work!
