Day 172: Delayed Again

Once again Elliott's ANC levels were too low for him to begin delayed intensification. He will have to wait another week to begin the next phase of chemotherapy. Again, this is not unusual and nothing for us to grow concerned about.

With a 3rd week off chemo Elliott has grown even stronger. Saturday he took a few unassisted steps. Sunday he took several  steps on separate occasions. By Sunday night Elliott was walking all over the house. It was only a few months ago that he was too weak to even crawl. Seeing him walk has been really encouraging as we prepare ourselves for this next round. We expect him to lose strength and weight during delayed intensification, but now we have seen with our own eyes that he can bounce back quickly when chemotherapy ends.
