The Ordeal Continues - Day 10

Blasts were at 1% today. YAY!!!!

Throat still worse. Steven is reduced to pudding and ice cream for sustenance. Heart rate is running quite high. But kidney numbers are staying not too bad, which is very good. He's picked up some sort of respiratory infection. They took samples to do a culture.

I called the donor search coordinator to see if they had any word yet on availability of the chosen donor. Nothing definite yet, but from e-mails she received, she knows they are working on it. Slow as molasses that National BMT Donor Bank. But, they're the only game in town. Patience, patience, patience.
