Baby Steps

by Shannon on June 17, 2008

Adam’s still not feeling great, but he is making some baby steps in the right direction!  The acid reflux is beginning to get a bit better and that is providing Adam some relief.  He is able to sleep a little more and is even beginning to think about food again.  His throat and mouth are also beginning to look a bit better.  His white blood cell count is stil boucing between one and two.  That count should start to go up when the stem cells begin to graft (usually 14-21 days after transplant, today is day 11).  Adam has been fighting a fever the last several days.  Doctors don’t seem concerned, the cultures they’re taking daily don’t show any sign of infection.  We’ll take all positive steps, even if they are baby steps!

Hey, Jo just called.  Adam’s white cell count is at 5 today!!!  Doctors warn that it probably won’t stay that high, but it’s still good news!

Hola Adam!
Been thinking about you and praying for you daily. I know this little obstacle won’t stay in your way. Stay positive and know you are an inspiration to all of us.
Love and Blessings,
