Day 18 - Happy Valentines Day!

Tyler's blood test results were something to love today!

WBC: 3.68
HCT: 31%
PLT: 13

We hope that his platelet level continues to stay above 10 tomorrow, so that we don't have to stay for a platelet transfusion.

It was nice to have such a quick and easy day at SCCA. We went in for a blood draw and didn't have to wait at all -- there were no others there at the same time. Then we went up to the 6th floor to get the results of the test. The charge nurse said that we could go. Talk about an easy day at the doctor's office.

On the down side, we think Tyler is starting to show some signs of GVHD. We hope that it doesn't get much worse, as it makes his stomach feel unwell. Eating is enough of a challenge, but we could use all of the relief possible from eating related challenges.

We hope that each of you got to spend time with your loved ones today.

  1. Hi, Tyler & Mandy! I hope the GVHD effects are minimal & manageable and I can't tell you how thrilled I am to see your counts continue to climb! Woo hoo!!!
