Ellie's blood counts were pretty good today, but the platelets were not high enough to start chemo...yippee! We are scheduled to take her in for bone marrow biopsies on Tuesday and then start chemo on Wednesday or Thursday. I am so glad. We will have 5 or more days...for her to EAT. So that's the big news.
After the clinic appointment, we went to visit Ellie's new second cousin who is one week old. We've pretty much been keeping Ellie in a bubble these days, so we figure that a new baby is the safest person for her to be around...and vice-versa. Ellie was thrilled - she was able to hold baby Aiden and even helped to feed him his bottle.
