Scarlett visited her NP today for her now weekly labs and check-up (we're down from regularly twice a week since February, and far from the dreaded 5 appointments in a week). She's doing great! Round 7 of chemo has had very little effect so far. She is a little (or a lot) queasy if we aren't right on time with her anti-nausea medications, but otherwise feeling good. Her ANC (white blood cell/immune system count) is still safe and high. She is still far from needing any blood transfusions. It's almost...ALMOST...easy.
We're still waiting on the job front. Chris went for an interview today that was cancelled and rescheduled the minute he got there...but they promise it's not because of him and they want to see him later this week (I don't want to jinx it, but it's a hugely awesome job at a place that rhymes with Schmoogle...) Even if that doesn't work out, he had a great review and is in line to move up at Starbucks, so something will happen either way. I haven't heard back from the school district yet (despite increasingly frequent e-mails and calls from me asking what's happening) so I will make my presence known tomorrow.
We're doing some local publicity for the blood drive, so if you're in town, you may see those little blue eyes peeking at you from posters while you're getting coffee or shopping. I'm working on a blood drive FAQ post, so if you're still not sure what we're up to, it's coming. If you're ready to make an appointment (which we suggest, since we have no idea how many are planning to attend...) you can get started HERE!
