A few days ago Phil's white cell count came up to .4 (after a steady stay at .1) and his platelets went from >2 to 4 then 5 then 7 with no drops in between. So, the Dr decided that he could go home tomorrow for a week before coming back the 27th to be re-admitted. He will go to Emory on Friday and Monday for labs and possible platelets and blood if he needs it (which I am going to declare he won't need).
He is very excited about being at home. He has been instructed to be a hermit and germ free and only leave the house to go to the Dr.
He handled this chemo like the Chemo King he is so I know the next round will be no different - maybe even less of an issue.
