Quick Update on Nick 7/21/11

This is just going to be a quick update. I'll get a more detailed one out later today.

Nick got the "old" chemo and IVIG yesterday. He did very well. All of his labs look good. His iron levels are just a hair below normal, which is great! It means that we can back off of the oral iron and his body is allowing the iron to be absorbed.

We have to go back to Birmingham tomorrow, Friday, July 22, for the "new" chemo.

Nick is at high risk for having an allergic reaction to this chemo, because he has had it before. It's got something to do with the way this chemo works.

Anyway...due to this, the chemo has to be given very slowly and there wasn't time yesterday.

Pray for us tomorrow.

In His Grip,
