Day +15. Casey is having a good day. His computer is fixed, his white blood count is up to .3, and he was able to eat some yogurt and applesauce. His platelets and red blood count were real low, so he was transfused with both of them today. We did 5 laps around the nurses station tonight. He is talking about going home in a week. I'm not sure what the doctors say about that, but it is good for him to think of positive things. His counts have a long way to go, but we are on the upside now. Yeah! The mucositis in his throat had him snoring like a freight train (or his Uncle Dale, depending on who you talk to). I think he was waking himself up. That has even subsided a bit. The first 30 days after the transplant are the most critical, and we are half way there.
Whoever put the Starbucks in this hospital is my hero.... A wine bar would make the drive home too difficult.
