4-Month Check-Up

After a couple of eventful appointments at the clinic, with near-faints while getting his IV placed and random itchy rashes developing along his arm during the Pentamidine infusion, I am pleased to say that today's appointment is going much more smoothly. 

The IV went in uneventfully, the intravenous Benadryl has knocked him out, and so far he is free of itchy rashes.

And best of all....

the docs have declared him healthy as can be! 

His blood test was great and the doc was 100% unconcerned about the one random symptom that we were slightly worried about.    WBC=3.2, ANC=1750, Hgb=16.2, Platelets=135, Weight=68kg.  His platelets were the one count that had remained slightly abnormal in previous blood tests, but this month they are very close to being back to normal again. 

Whew...now I can breathe again!
