This is Matt in the blogosphere. Now everyone in our family has had this crazy virus, I think it's West Nile or SARS. Megan came down with it last night, but is feeling slightly better today. Even baby Alli seemed to have a bout with it last night. She threw up once in the swing, then later all over her daddy - how fun! Allison appears OK today so far.
Brady seems to be doing a bit better today. He slept great last night and is eating a little more. He is certainly having a harder time fighting this infection because of his low white blood cell counts due to chemotherapy. On Monday, his ANC (a measure of neutrophils which are a type of white blood cell) was 14,000, on Thursday it was 1,400 and the nurse practitioner said they are expected to basically go to 0 over the weekend, making him very susceptible to infection.
Please pray for Brady and Megan to recover from illness and Brady not to catch any new ones.
