Day +35

WBC 3600
ANC 3000
Hemoglobin 8.8 - transfusion needed today
Platelets 79k

The steroids were reduced to 7.5mg starting this morning at 1am. He woke up about 2am to breastfeed. Then at about 4am he was wide-eyed. I was not about to get up, so I gave him a pile of books. He read until about 7:30am. He will be on the 7.5mg steroid dose for about 1 week. Then it will reduce to 5mg. He should switch over to oral Prograf (immunosuppressant) any day. It looks like we will go to RMH next week.

I got a free chair massage by Kimberly, while Child Life played with David. I got out a second time to ride my bike while he took a nap. We had three quick visits from friends.
