Round 2

The second round of Matthew's chemo treatment starts today.  This round lasts for 8 days followed by a couple of weeks of rest.  He will start out this morning with a bone marrow biopsy to determine if he is in remission or not.  Irregardless, the chemo will proceed as planned.  His counts were still not quite as high as the doctors would have preferred.  We are looking to the bone marrow biopsy to potentially tell us why or if there is any additional cause for concern (as if we could possibly get 'more concerned' than we already are).
