It's Thursday and Steven had more labs run today. His last ANC or neutrophil count was .2 or 200 and now they are 0. Steven said, "They can't be zero--there must be some in there." I don't know enough about it to say with all certainty, but the number they gave me was 0.0, so it seems kind of like zero to me. So, I guess school is out for tomorrow and Monday. I not feeling as dissapointed about it as I was last time--maybe because now I'm scared of infection!
We had another good day today. We got to wish Steven's cousin, James, a happy birthday. Steven wanted to surprise him with something and so we brought ballons and a cake. It made a huge difference in his attitude.
This afternoon I noticed a lot of hairs on his shirt and chair. He started tugging at his hair and sure enough, lots came out. He started to tell me about an idea, but it made him laugh so hard he couldn't spit it out. When he finally stopped laughing, he told me he wanted to play a trick on people where he acts really mad and starts pulling his hair out. We'll have to make a video--I'm sure we could use it in our family film festival somehow.
