Eric had his blood tested yesterday. His white blood cell count has improved greatly, it more than tripled since last time he was tested. So the shot worked and he'll have round 7 on Tuesday. And he will be getting the Neulesta shot each week now to ensure the WBC count stays high enough.

He's been feeling pretty good the last couple of days. He said he's able to taste some foods again, which he loves. He still has some mouth sores and it's difficult for him to eat anything that is hard or has a hard shell or even nuts. I made some Pretzel M&M treats today, he had a hard time with those. But he's still ok with plain chocolate and things like that. (And donuts.. and soft cookies...) We're going to have a date night tonight and have dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse. We'll see how that goes! Looking forward to going out together.

Syracuse has had 45" of snow already (as of yesterday) and it's not even winter yet. I feel like we live in a snow globe. Thursday night it took me 2 hours to go 13 miles. Worst commute I've ever had. Thankfully most everyone was just going slow and being safe. It just takes a lot more time to get anywhere when it's snowing that hard! I think we're in for an interesting winter.
