With counts of ZERO, there's nowhere to go from here but upwards...with no immunity, of course, we're always worried about possible infections but so far, so good.
We also spent a lot of the day reading a new-to-us book, The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles. Almost every time I asked what he wanted to do next, he asked if I would keep reading. I think we read about 100 pages today! I love when he gets really into a book like that. I'm enjoying it too! Thanks, Jordan and family!

Isn't it better to do laps with a sword? If you're Sam, of course! With thanks to Samantha Roberts, a US Olympic hopeful in fencing, who sent Sam a cool fencing helmet during round four -- this was in the long mysterious package from the other day.

I think he's medically fine, but he's not totally himself. He's not tearing around the floor, bouncing off the walls, begging to stay up later. There are moments when he's back to his energetic self, but he just seems a little more tired than usual. So we're doing a lot of resting. That's what the hospital is for, right?
And so we rest....and tomorrow is another day...
