Quick Update: Hospital Admission Delayed Until Thursday

**If you haven't already done so, be sure to read my more detailed post below this entry!**

Today Aiden and I headed to Children's National Outpatient Clinic so that his bood counts could be tested. Aiden's ANC (Absolute Neutrophil Count) needed to be above 750 in order to receive chemotherapy; Aiden's came in just around 580, which is too low for treatment. Since this round of chemo is designated inpatient, his hospital stay is postponed until Thursday of this week. Treatment delay due to a low ANC is not uncommon.

At the clinic today Aiden was given an extra Neupogen shot. We are hoping the additional injection will give his neutrophils the boost they need to reassume chemotherapy later this week.

Thanks for all the well wishes we received this morning. I will continue to keep everyone posted!


Aiden doesn't seem too upset about the delayed hospital admission, though he was looking forward to flirting with all of the nurses!
