Tomorrow is a big day, Annie and Bowie turn 1 year old!  We have frosty paws and party hats which is the perfect combination for a great time. 
Casey's counts are not improving on their own, he continues to get shots of nuelasta, and transfused with platelets and red blood.  Nobody seems concerned, cord cells are slow to engraft. Because of headaches and low platelets, Casey had a CT scan on his head yesterday to make sure he does not have a brain bleed, which he doesn't.  Boy am I glad I didn't know about that until after the results were in.  His friend Eric, who was one of his teammates at UNC came up from Tennessee yesterday and spent the night.  Eric is in grad school at Vanderbilt and on spring break.  Casey was in Eric's wedding in June.  Today Eric took Casey up to Hershey.  You know you have a good friend when he leaves his bride to drive across the country and sits in a cancer center with you for 5 hours on his spring break.  Thank you Eric and Kathleen.
Well I have a party to get ready for!


  1. Casey

    I hope you are feeling better today. I talked with Stevie yesterday and I'm glad your CT scan went ok. We are still praying for those counts to come up-come on baby stem cells!


  2. A true friend is God's greatest gift!

    Sounds like Casey has that gift!

  3. Fighting the good fight! Thank God for true friends. Keep the faith.
