Grant has been doing great! We are counting down days until he will be finished with chemo. After he got out of the hospital, his counts bounced back up and stayed up. So guess what...they raised his chemos steadily back up. On his March 19th visit, his counts were actually in the 750-1500 range we've been searching for all this time. But, it didn't last long. His counts have been back up since then. They were really high at his last visit, but Dr. Heym left his chemos alone. He will have his LAST spinal tap on June 4th and Dr. Heym said he would reevaluate chemo doses then.
You can tell from the lack of updates, we have had a lot going on. So thankfully, Grant is feeling well. These are a few pictures of what's been happenin'....
I am one amazing kid! I turned 3 on April, 28th 2009. This was also the day that I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). But, I have not let that get me down. I began treatment immediately and continue to take treatment like a champ. God is doing miracles in my life everyday. My mom, dad, brother and I are just waiting to see what God is going to do next and how He is going to use my life and this situation for His glory. Please tell everyone about my blog so they can see God's goodness!
