David here  again, just a few hours after the last update.

The GCS-F wore off.   His ANC was 370 today.  The rest of the numbers were essentially the same.  I spoke to Dr. Dreyer who says she is not worried.  She said its not uncommon at all to have the  ANC go back down after the GCS-F wears off. I think she is absolutely telling me the truth, but we cant help but be very worried.  We are holding the Gleevec for now, as that can make it harder for  recovering bone marrow to produce new cells.

Grant has a clinic appointment on Tuesday afternoon.  Please pray that his counts continue to trend upward.
