Coming home tomorrow....

Cody had a great day today. He was taken off almost all of his meds and IV feeding last night. We spent almost 3 hours playing Monopoly with the Child life people. I know I have mentioned it before but Cody is very good at Monopoly and for his age he does a great job counting money. I have to tell you, none of the players cut him a break and he totally dismantled them. The police should have been called because Cody massacred them.. LOL He had most of the money and most of the property.

He is looking good and his blood is coming around nicely. Although his ANC number did not go up since yesterday, his white blood cells have went up while his neutrophils went down. That is not a bad thing. White blood cells are made up of many different things and neutrophils are just one. Neutrophils are very important because they fight infection from bacteria and fungus. I hope and expect that his ANC goes up even more tomorrow...

As far as what's next, I will give you all the tentative game plan tomorrow.

So glad to hear Cody's making progress - GOOOOO Cody! - and that y'all had a fun time playing Monopoly. I can imagine Cody is quite the real estate tycoon - a mini-Donald Trump, but without that awful comb-over. ;-)

Prayers continue!
