Please no more chemo

Little T's platelets came back today at 87, the lowest in a while. His hemo doctor talked about putting on Vincristine again, aka chemo if his numbers don't improve. Little T has been on high doses of steroids for over two months. His hemo doctor's not comfortable having on him high doses for too long due to steroids' long term effects. He's reaching the time limit where he needs to be weaned off, or put on Vincristine. Damn. His platelets were 112 last week, the highest in a while, so things were looking like we could wean him off steroids, and he was going to make it just on steroids. We're hoping that today's number was just an anomaly. We'll find out more next week. I can't help worrying. I need a hug. I need good vibes.

Through it all, Little T laughs and smiles, except when he flies into 'roid rages. He wants to play with other kids. He doesn't understand why he can't. The social isolation of the steroids is hard to take, but it will break my heart if Vincristine takes away his voice again.

What a bummer that his numbers are down again. I'm praying that it's just an anomaly. I'm thinking of you and wishing for the best.
