After a week of no chemo Skyler's ANC has come up to 2.0!  Thank goodness.  It's not a great feeling knowing he has no immune system and that he is also off his antifungal.  He did great though which is such a relief.  Since his counts have come up he is scheduled for surgery tomorrow to finally place the port.  We both are pretty nervous and both for different reasons.  Please pray everything goes just right tomorrow and we wont have any complications.  I better go to the store and stock up on Excedrin tonight because I'm sure a giant headache is in my near future.

Thank you so much for the continued love and support.  I'm still trying to heal from everything that has happened and knowing there are people that care for Skyler and are praying for him helps me so much in this process.

Us too--we continue to pray for you and Skyler. We are glad that he is doing better though. Skyler is such a sweetheart and Crystal--you are AMAZING! Heavenly Father definately knew what he was doing when he sent Skyler to you =) Good luck tomorrow and our prayers and good thoughts are being sent your way! =)

I'm hoping things went great today. Having a port will be so great for Skyler. He'll finally be able to have a bath without worry, and go swimming again.

So great to hear that his ANC came up nicely.

I was thinking about you in the middle of the night cuz my three year old threw up and she was in the bath. Even then it was hard to get the smell out of her skin. I am so happy Skyler will get a port. Baths were Stevens favorite comfort thing through chemo. I hope everything went well. You are in our prayers.
