Wednesday, December 30, 2015...41 days in the hospital
It was a pretty quiet day for BJ. He had an abdominal x-ray to check the stent placement due to some pain on his right side since the procedure. He wasn't as nauseated today as yesterday, and his bilirubin levels are coming down as well. His white blood cell count is still less than 0.1. Hopefully his bone marrow will start to produce some white blood cells within the next 10 days. We're on day 21 since he started the clofarabine/mitoxantrone chemotherapy.
We had a visit from pet therapy today. Sadie is one of our favorites, because she reminds us of our dogs. She's a Moyen, a medium-sized poodle. Our dogs, Charlie Brown and Lucy are miniature poodles. Sadie was able to get a smile out of BJ. It was a short visit because BJ started to feel a little nauseated again.
Thank you for your continued prayers for BJ, and the other kids fighting cancer.
