Markus's flu seems to be under control. He continues to respond well to the chemo treatment. Since his admittance into the hospital last Monday and the beginning of his treatment on Thursday, his white blood cell count has remained low - which is to be expected with the treatment. However, today his white blood cell count has gone up a bit, which, according to our doctor, is a good sign that the treatment is working. We gladly accept this bit of good news and are feeling positive about his treatment regimen. Thank you all for the outpouring of love and moral support. Together we will stand strong.
