No treatment again this week, as Deans Nitrophyls (not sure how to spell it) are too low. They are slowly rising though so hopefully will be fine for next week. Stunning weather in Mackay today.

Deans blood test results came back that his platelets are high enough but now his Leucolytes (don't know if I have spelt properly) are too low. They are used to fight infection. So treatment can't continue yet. Dean is a lot more relaxed about this now that he knows the tumour hasn't grown.

Well, the blood test show that Deans platelet count has risen slightly. Still not high enough to continue treatment but a positive sign. The MRI showed that there is no change in the tumour, it has not decreased or increased. The oncologist is happy that there has not been an increase, especially considering that he hasn't had treatment for a few weeks.

The oncologist ordered a MRI for Dean so she can get an idea about progress and whether the chemo is working. He had it taken this morning and has been very dizzy ever since. We see the Oncologist Thursday morning to find out the results.

Deans had a couple of very busy days workwise, I think he has overdone it a bit as he has been dizzy and feeling crook all day. His brothers' daughter had a baby girl last night, so we popped up to the hospital tonight to welcome the little cutie into the world. All seems to be well with mum and bub.
Blood test tomorrow...........
