Update

I have been awful at updating this blog! My apologies, I guess it is a good thing though since it means there isn’t much to tell.
Ezra went to clinic today, he is now on his 3rd cycle of maintenance. Ezra has had a pretty high ANC the last couple of times we went in. At his last appt. there was talk of increasing his chemo to 125% dosage.
But of course that all changed today when we got back his counts and his ANC was 237! He was at 1700 last Monday, just to give you an idea of how quickly it can change.
He received his chemo today in clinic and will still get his spinal tap tomorrow, but is off of his oral chemo until his counts go back up to at least 750. When he resumes his chemo he only be getting 50% dosage so they can make sure his counts don’t crash again. Its been quite sometime since he has been netropenic!
He has been handling his chemo like a champ, has little to no side effects from it so far.
In other news, sweet boy turned 3 over the weekend. We had an awesome party with friends and family.
Here is a video I made for Ezra for his birthday, I forgot to post it here too.

  19. Hi Ezra
    My name is Jenna, you are a brave, courageous fighter and an inspiration. You are a hero.
    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.
    I wrote this poem
    Each of us are Special
    Each of us different,
    No one is the same
    Each of are us are unique in our own way,
    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    It doesen't matter what other's say
    we are special anyway.
