+787 Dentist, Eye Doctor, Ear Doctor

WBC - good
Hemoglobin 15.0
BUN - 19 (really good kidney function)
Weight - 33 lbs
Height - 89cm or something like that...each nurse measures him differently

He had Zenopax this week and did fine.

He was so excited to see Dr. Natalie, the children's dentist. He was so cooperative and I have to owe it all to Dr. Natalie and the beautiful way she loves her patients. His teeth and mouth look wonderful! No GVHD in the mouth. His x-ray looked good too.

His eyes were checked by Dr. Winton. He has no cataracts. Cataracts are common with long-term steroid use. He was cooperative with the eye drops but did not like the blurriness from the dilation drops. His eyes look good too.

His ears were tested and the results were flat, not good hearing at all. There is a lot of wax covering the ear drum so we have to go back for a wax removal, then we will repeat the test.

His Prograf was 13.5 which is too high, so it went down to 6mls.

Glad to see his kidney function is good. I've been worried.
