:( I have been going around telling everyone that Gary's last chemo Friday was last week. Turns out it's not. I called to check on his bloodwork today and his Aldolase level popped back up. They gave us permission to still go out of town this weekend for Mason's Cure JM concert. They said we need come in Monday however. He will continue with his Cytoxin and Methotrexate. I suppose I have no room to complain. So many patients and parents have been doing this much longer than I have. Gary is still doing well. No complaints. But still was a little disappointing. There was another level that also did the very same thing.
I really enjoy an article the FDA put out today about drugs they are using to treat autoimmune diseases. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/05/health/05DRUG.html
We are still going camping though now that we got clearance. The doctor said to make sure he is getting his meds, keep him out of the sun, and she will see us Monday. Hopefully we are leaving tomorrow night. We may wait till Friday morning because I am not sure how Gary would handle a late night trip like that. I would hope he would sleep but sleep has been and issue lately. He has not been taking naps because he gets his big dose of steroid in the morning. It has been taking him longer to turn in for the night as well.
