imageCharlotte had her monthly clinic appointment today.  She was once again very well behaved for the blood draw, but she still doesn’t like to be held down while they find and access a vein.  Like always, she recovered quickly and we were out in the hall only to find her first primary nurse Katy!  They were both so happy to see each other and enjoyed a quick visit.

We were able to see Dr. DeSantes and the NP.  There were lots of smiles in the room as they both agreed she looked great and Amy and I were both happy to hear that.  Fortunately, her CBC results came in while we were still talking Disney with them.  Dr DeSantes asked Charlotte if he could come with her to Disney World and she jumped up and down saying “Yes!!”  Her WBC was 7.0, hemoglobin 12.9, 279k platelets, and 3320 neutrophils.  As Sharon put it, “Beautiful”.

After the appointment we headed over to the UW Hospital to see my uncle.  He is getting his first round of chemo and we are happy to report he is doing well.

Disney here we come!
