2nd day of chemo...

They just finished giving Cody the second day of chemo. He will be getting 3 days of radiation and one day off. Then he will have to come in next week and a couple days the following week. I hope all continues to go well. He has been in great spirits all day. Diane mentioned to me that Cody continues to have low white blood cell counts. This is even before his chemo started. His numbers have been dropping ever so slightly for weeks. We hope this is something that his body will work through but it could be a sign of another type of cancer. Unfortunately the drugs they use to fight one cancer often cause other cancers to start. Please pray that it is not going to be the case....

The fast paced fund raising has continued today. We have scheduled the head shaving for 1pm on Thursday. I will post some of the pictures when I can. I also ordered more medium bracelet today. Cody's elementary school is having a Spring fair in early May and they are going to have a Cody's Crew stand to sell the bracelets. I'd like to thank Flo King for all her efforts. She has done a tremendous job selling the bracelets.
