Birthday weekend…

It was my birthday this weekend and thankfully Mia was on fantastic form.  The day started with me having a lie in !  Followed by breakfast in bed, presents and a leisurely shower. 

Mia and Harvey enjoyed sometime in the garden whilst the sun was shinning then Nana and Gary came for a visit and treated us all to lunch on the seafront followed by a walk on the beach where we searched the rock pools of “Harvey’s reef” (named by Scotty last summer because Harvey spent so much time there!) finding crabs, tiny fish, winkles etc.

 When we returned home Harvey and Mia decorated the 32 mini cupcakes that I had made for my birthday cake this year… I have nearly eaten them all!



Mia’s blood counts are slowly rising although she is still profoundly neutropenic at 0.1 and therefore continues on her once daily IV antibiotic.  She will begin her interim maintanence again tomorrow with IV Vincristine, Dexamethaone (steroid argh) for 5 days and mercaptopurine and oral methotrexate should be commencing again but will be held off until her neutrophils have recovered to at least 0.5.
