Well, there isn't too much "new" news to report today... Dad is still in the hospital and last night he spiked some high fevers. They decided this morning that today they will ct scan his sinuses to see if there is an infection that could be the culprit. They also told him that he has GOT to start moving around and exercising more because that is how he can combat the fluid in his lungs and if he can't get it to go down then they are threatening to tap his lungs and drain them - YUCK! Hopefully that serves as a very MOTIVATING factor!
His platelet count was a 10 this morning which is still way too low and that is after 2 transfusions yesterday - he is getting 2 more transfusions of platelets today as well. His blood counts dropped more and he is going to get 2 units of blood transfused today. His white count also slipped a little more.... So, no great news there.....
We still don't have all of our results back but we do have SOME of the DNA results and what we saw appears to be encouraging that the donor's cells are engrafting and taking over - which is a GOOD thing.... and as far as the biopsy - we still don't have full results but there were no "blasts" found as i reported a few days ago, but they did say today that there are some "abnormalities" - we don't have the full explanation of what that really "means" but we are working on it! So, i will report more when we know more.....
THIS JUST IN: - dad DID go on a walk today and DID do his arm exercises YAY!!!
Please keep up all of your amazing prayers - we need them and we love them!
Love to all!
