Blake was moved into the PICU tonight. He is on a ton of antibiotics and anti-fungal medicines, but they think he has a fungal infection in his lungs.
Right now, his breathing and all is good, but they need to keep him monitored.
He's got a long way to go and a short time to get there if the bone Marrow Transplant is to have a chance to be successful, and they want to do it in a few short weeks.
He's still having fevers and he's still throwing up...
On a good note, his white blood count has doubled from 100 to 200, and his infection fighting poly's are 80%... This time, his platelets are not recovering... Nothing has been simple, nor has it been the norm...
It so continues!
We would like to thank everyone who has donated to the Blake Wayland Leukemia Fund through this website, and those who participated in the sanctioned fundraisers
