Brock Rocks

Busy Day(s)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 8:47 am

We’ve had a couple of busy days up here.  They started chemo again yesterday and Brock also had a spinal tap.  He did great!  It was the best he’d ever done for a tap.  All morning I’d been telling the PA about how he was impossible to sedate and (thankfully) he went and made a liar out of me.  I love when he does that.

He got more chemo this morning…aaaaaand we’re going home!!!  He’s still having fevers but we have to go in to clinic almost every day for the rest of this week (and next) and so we can just draw blood cultures there.  However, when his AGC gets low enough (from the chemo) if he’s still having fevers then we’ll have to be admitted again for iv antibiotics.  I anticipate that we’ll be back up here by the middle of next week.

But we’re very thankful for a few days at home (and Jaycie is thrilled).

Please pray that the fevers will stop so that we won’t have to be readmitted!


  1. Great news, V! Hope things keep going well for all of you. The newest pics of B are wonderful 🙂

  9. Oh, Vanessa, I’m so thankful to the Lord that Brock has the opportunity of going home soon! How wonderful for Jaycie, too!!
    Praying for the fevers of unknown cause just go away forever; it seems so strange the docs can’t determine their cause. Praying as always for your entire family. May God bless you with grace and strentgh.
    Love, Aunt Connie
