Chemo next week

Cohen's white blood cell count is back up and higher than we've seen. Yay! His red blood cells and platelets were really low, so yesterday they gave him transfusions at Primary Childrens. Chris and Cohen were there for 5 hours and Cohen did really well.
Next week he'll have the 3 scans and start chemo. He needs to be sedated for the scans so they have to do them on 3 different days; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Chemo starts on Tuesday after the 2nd scan and will go for 5 days. If everything goes well he'll be able to go home on the 23rd at the earliest and probably the 24th at the latest. I really don't want to spend Christmas at the hospital. But if we have to we'll make the best of it.
Thank you so much for your prayers!
