Day +28

WBC 1800
Hemoglobin 10.2
Platelets 99k
ANC 1700
Weight 11.9

WBC and ANC are up. He can break out of here with a mask today. I'm waiting until this evening when Michael arrives so we can celebrate. His rash is looking lighter, but it flares up with heat, like when he sleeps. He was taken off of Vancomyocin and Ceftazadine (antibiotics) since he's been fever free. The steroids do a good job at masking the fever. Last night he received a dose of pentamadine (anti-fungal). He got sick in the night, which I think was due to toxic overload. How much can a little body handle? I would be sick too if I was taking 6 different drugs!
