Well it’s been a while since I blogged. There really hasn’t been that much going on.
Ian is now 14 days post transplant. Every morning he gets blood drawn at about 4 am and every morning he texts me that his white blood cell count is zero. Every morning I get the news and prepare for a day of waiting. He continues to periodically require blood and platelet transfusions. It is turning into Groundhog Day over here…
Yesterday we got a brief break because Ian’s white blood cell count was 0.1. The doctors said it might go down though. They questioned if it was real.
Well Ian’s counts are back to zero again and we are a little discouraged. We are tired. Ian misses Tyler very very much. The doctors have started doing additional tests to see if there is anything else they can be doing to speed along the process. Ian will begin double doses of a bone marrow stimulating medication today and they will be testing his blood for possible infections that can cause low white blood cells.
Overall we are doing well but anxious to get home. Please pray for Ian. Pray that his white blood cells come in and he is able to go home soon. Pray that the doctors are able to identify if there is anything they can do to speed the process along.
Thank you all so much for your support during this time. I will write with more updates soon. Please text me if you are interested in visiting and I will let you know if it is ok. 6027621300
