February 22, 2011

Casey's fever continued to hang around, so he is still in the hospital. He has now gone almost 24 hours without a fever.  If all goes as planned, they will do a bone marrow biopsy tomorrow and then release him.  We will not have the biopsy results for a couple of days, but that will dictate the next steps.  Hopefully this clinical trial drug has killed off all of the leukemia blasts and they can give him a mini transplant.  We all need to say our prayers and cross our fingers that this biopsy comes back clear. 
We are getting into championship season for Casey's swimmers.  He is so proud that every one of his senior team swimmers has qualified for districts. Way to go L.A.C.!
I also have to send kudos to Casey's friend Griff.  Griff's brother in law got to perform on stage at the grammy awards with Bob Dylan.  I think that is the best story I have heard all year.  Just 2 short years ago The Avett Brothers were performing in bars in Chapel Hill, and now they have perfomed on the grammys....and with Bob Dylan.  I had to watch the clip on the internet a couple of times.  The grammy's is one of my favorite shows.  I can't believe how star struck I am with the whole situation.  Not only does Griff personally know Big Bob, but he now also has a kinda famous brother in law.  I bet with all of his new found fame, Griff would still be willing to come up here and take Casey in for another round at the day hospital.
We will see what tomorrow brings.  I will keep you posted.
