We handed out so many ribbons this month, and the kids loved wearing their "cancer ribbons" every day. We heard stories from family and friends about how they were able to raise awareness through wearing them and people asking about it. Thanks a million to everyone who participated. It only take a few people sometimes to make a difference :) We have one week left, and I am not going out quietly, so I made some more ribbons tonight to pass out our last week. We are already making bigger and better plans for next year....
I know I am not normally quick with my updates, but I am so tired, and I didn't want everyone to think we were still in a state of misery! Things have calmed down since my last post, and all is well for the time being. Brinley had to get neupogen shots for a few days, given by Daddy dearest (mommy dearest flat out refused to be the shot giver) and she was not happy about it. But when they checked her counts yesterday they were THROUGH THE ROOF! The nurse had to prepare me before telling me her white blood count. Her ANC is 12,000! Just so you know, a normal person's is about 5,000, and Brinley's with the chemo should be about 1500. Soooo, she could fight off just about anything right now. Of course they don't like to see counts that high because they assume the cancer cells mimic the white cells, and we certainly don't want a relapse, which is why they only do those shots when they feel it is truly necessary.
