    Day 35

    The report says : No evidence of residual b lymphoblastic leukemia. Patient is in complete remission at this time. Yahoo!

    We will continue with 2x weekly labs and follow up appointments. Also, bone marrow biopsies at 60, 90, 180 days and so forth. He had a pretty extensive neurological appointment today. He continues to have some neurotoxicity so he will be monitored over the next two months with the neurologist.

    All in all, its been a great day .

    Congrats, it must be a relief to have jumped that hurdle here's hoping the remaining issues resolved with time and remission becomes all you both want.

    Day 46

    James continues to do well. He's getting stronger every day. His ANC remains low ranging from 400-700 last week. He did not receive any help from nuepogen so this is his own immune system working. His dr said that this is common and the fear is always infection, so we keep a low profile for now. No parties for us today but we are enjoying the Irish holiday. Happy St Paddys to you all. Enjoy the day.
