Since last week, Jeremy has been taking the chemo drug Cytarabine, which is given into his central line for 4 days a week. This morning he went to hospital for a lumbar puncture and his dose of Cytarabine. Tomorrow and the 2 days after that, the hospital community nurse can come to our place and give him his Cytarabine so that he can go to preschool etc. We hope that this week he doesn't spike a fever from the Cytarabine, and also that his blood counts are OK so that he won't need a blood transfusion on Thursday.
