Quiet weekend in the hospital

Not much going on, yesterday Liam had some diarrhea (likely from the antibiotics), but as a result we can't leave the room. Liam's going to need a transfusion for Platelets today, it only takes 10-15 minutes and is through his IV. 

This is all a part of our new "normal", getting transfusions is expected. And unfortunately fevers are going to happen as well.

Liam had a fever Friday morning, then he didn't have a fever again until the afternoon. He didn't have a fever Saturday or so far this morning.

We won't be leaving the hospital until Liam's blood counts come back. Nadir is the expected period when the blood counts drop, should end about today, and his blood counts should start going up tomorrow.

Blood counts today:

Liam's Count Normal Range When take action
White Blood Cells 0.1 4.0-14.0 n/a
Hemoglobin 100 110-157 <80
Platelets 31 150-400 <10-20
