The Land of Neutropenia....

Well. Elijah's counts were lower today than they were last week.  It just means we need to be extra careful, and we test again next week. It also means that our next trip to NY may be delayed because they can't do any exams or treatment until his counts are back up.
Which is okay, because I don't have a flight, or a place to stay, or childcare figured out....
One. Day. At. A. Time.
We are super thankful that despite having such low counts, and having some colds in the house, Elijah has remained well and without any fever. (Fever means ER).

I was so worn out on Monday, I just wasn't up to "normal" school. I assigned the kids a presentation on blood, in teams.  I figured we might as well learn about where life has us.  They did such a great job! It was interesting, amazing, and I was so impressed with how much they learned.
"The Circulatory Laboratry"
Showing the ventricles of the heart, and where the blood is oxygenated.
"An Army in Your Blood"
Showing red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets.
