Today was a special day, the nurse came to draw blood and give Ronnie his shot in the morning. We had an appointment at 1:00 for the results......drum roll.... Everyone in his group is out of Neutropenia! So exciting, no more masks, unless around a crowd of people. His white blood cells went from 500 on Friday to 13,500 today. They will go down to normal in a few days which is between 5,000 and 12,000.
Ronnie is having some GI problems. They think it could be from all the medication and the chemo. He took another praxolan for his stomach and some riopan before bed. Hopefully this helps, if not we will see the doctor tomorrow.
He is pretty pumped with his experience and treatment so far. Life is good!

Great updates. Feeling pumped along with both of you. Part about the foot is such exciting news along with the blood. Keep it going. All of our best thoughts and prayers.
