DAY + 86 - Heading in the right direction

Happy August Everyone-

I can't believe how fast the summer flew by.  The month of May moved so agonizingly slow for us and the rest of summer seems to have gone in the blink of an eye.  I guess like all things...time is all about perspective. 
We finally have some good news!  Connor's counts are going up- they have not dropped for the past 3 weeks and his WBC is in 2.1 range.  Still very very low but so encouraging from a month ago when it was almost non existent at .34.  His Red Blood cells are still very low and he will most likely continue to need blood transfusions but that is OK.  His platelets are also up from 26 to 40 and he probably will not be needing his "yellow jello" anymore.  AND wait there is more... THE BEST news is he will be able to start school with the rest of his 2nd grade.  I don't think he will be getting the perfect attendance award (his goal before graduating Patton) but so thankful that he can start with everyone else and feel normal again. 

Thank you everyone for all your love and support.  We are excited to go back to "normal".
