Leukeran And Possibilities…

Cody and I went to see Dr Butzer today and I am pretty happy with the results. He is 60 lbs and holding strong which is a great sign. His CBC came out pretty good! His whites are at the just below middle range at 5.84 (6.0 is mid range normal), his reds are 6.41 and platelets are 2.68 – both normal.

Butzer checked his glands which are barely there, but they are there. I told him about Cody’s crazy weekend and we talked about how that may be why his glands are a bit swollen. Really if he had not known Cody has cancer he would say the glands are in the normal range. Happy about that news too!!!

So we decided to start Cody on the Leukeran pills. He gets 2mg every OTHER day and I got 15 2mg pills. He has a month’s worth and I will monitor his reaction to them and see how he does, then bring him back in to see the Dr after the month is out to get a CBC and see where he is. That will be the interesting part since that mile marker is when he normally gets the glands back in full force and another dose of chemo. He usually makes it about two months. We are hoping the Leukeran may lengthen that time.

Onward and upward!!!!!
