Mason was actually supposed to leave his monkey tomorrow when he goes inpatient again, but we found out today that his counts aren't high enough for him to be admitted. His ANC is just barely under one-thousand, which is what is required to be able to start another round of chemo. We'll have his counts check again on Monday, and if they are over one-thousand, then he will be admitted.
This works in our favor though, since we LOVE his Oncologists, Dr. Bruggers and Dr. Sato. Since his treatments had to be pushed back to a Friday schedule three months ago, we've been having to go to clinic on Fridays. Neither of them works on Fridays, so we have had to see other doctors. They weren't bad doctors, but they didn't know Mason's specific case, and I was always having to repeat the entire history for each weekly visit, only to have them say they would have to check with Dr. Bruggers or Dr. Sato and get back with us before doing anything. It will be SO nice to be with doctors who know Mason and his history, again. Plus, I just like them better anyway. They always remember Mason, and asked for an update the three times we've randomly run into each other. :) My fingers are crossed, hoping we can get back to a Monday schedule!
