The update from the clinic is good- ANC = 2040. So... Mollie starts back up on daily chemo (6MP and methotrexate) at 100% dose. I am guessing her counts are going to crash again and then they will cut back on her dose until we find a happy medium. We may need to consider changing antibiotics since the Septra (Bactrim) she takes as a prophylactic can also suppress the bone marrow. But for now, all is well.
I also talked at length with Dr. Bell about the swine flu vaccine. She says get it. All of us, including Mollie. Mollie may not be able to mount a full immune response, but any immunity is better than none.
Mollie' seems ready for the first day of school. I will meet with her teacher next week to give her some information and talk about our concerns; she seems really responsive and I noticed a huge bottle of Germ-X in the classroom, so I feel pretty good about Mollie going to school on Monday.
Here are a handful of pictures from our trip. I can't really sum up the whole trip in a paragraph, so I'll just mention a few of the highlights: Claire's baptism, days at the beach, family dinners, rafting on the Truckee, Fairyland with Anita, and visiting my grandma at Mercy.
