YEAH!!! We do not have to come up with $10,000! Grant's kidneys are functioning just fine and he will not be needing the expensive medicine! The concern that arose yesterday was because his methotrexate levels were very high for his age. Basically, he was overdosed. They will have to adjust his dose the next time he gets this. Anyway, when the levels are as high as they were, they have seen kids have kidney failure because of it. Grant managed to process the chemo out of his system just fine so far.

He is pretty down right now. He was up most of the night throwing up. We are hanging out with a temp of 99.5. I hope it stays there!!!! We can not get to 101.0. If we do, we get to stay 3 more days.
