The Ordeal Continues, Day 5

Today Steven will receive the fifth and final doses of this chemo round. And then we wait and see. He will receive blood and platelets today.

His counts are now down; he is neutropenic. Which means he has no immune system.

Visitors should take precautions. If you have any infection or have been exposed, please don't visit at this time. If you do visit, wash hands thoroughly before entering the room. Use the hand disinfectant available at his door or in the room. And no touching, not even a handshake. Keep a distance of several feet from Steven.

Steven is still doing pretty well and in decent spirits. His step-sister Lydia is flying in this afternoon to see him.
