Brian is doing great! He has an excellent appetite that surprises the Doctor's. His favorite food right now is single serving Mac & Cheese, Mom has to run across the street to CVS to buy it for him can't get enough of it and Slim Jim's. He doesn't care for Hospital food. He shows no problems from his seizure which is great! His ANC count (white cell count) is 100 today, 400 to go. 500 count for 3 days in a row means the transplant is working. Keep the prayers coming! Brian's family could use ...

Brian had a seizure today, the Doctor's aren't sure what caused it but he is getting anti seizure medicine now. He had a cat-scan and MRI done, cat-scan was good & MRI results will be tomorrow. Brian is doing good right now. Mom was with him when it happened and she did a great job at staying calm and helping Brian through it. Please keep him in your prayers! Thank You!

Brian's  ANC

 absolute neutrophil count

his counts are at 0 as of today An ANC of 500 or more for 3 days in a row is a sign of engraftment. Engraftment can occur as early as 10 days after transplant. For patients who receive cord blood, the average time to neutrophil engraftment is between 21 and 35 days. ...Now we wait for engraftment to happen =)
His hair is also starting to fall out...He thought it was funny!!=) Brian continues to be doing very well. T...
