Facebook update from Help Anton

Day +59 I'm planning on giving better updates for the past few days at some point but not today :) I did want to let y'all know that Anton is doing great and will get to go home tomorrow as long as he doesn't get a fever. He only had a fever the day he was admitted and hasn't had one since. His ANC and WBC were good today but because they keep falling then going back up they decided to do IV IG today which will boost his immune system and hopefully he will be able to keep his numbers up after this. Papa T and Wita headed back to TX today and we are beyond sad about it. It was so nice having them here and we already miss them a ton. Anton's blood type is O (can't remember if it is + or -) and his donors blood type is A. At some point after transplant Anton's blood type will change to his donors type. This doesn't normally happen until closer to 100 days post transplant but Anton's blood is already showing some A cells!!! This means that his blood type is already changing over to his donors type!!

I think he just needed to recharge his batteries. He slept for almost 24 hours and has been up and happy since 8am with no fever! via Help Anton http://ift.tt/1c9A1jy May 22, 2015 at 11:15AM

This little cutie only woke up a few times today. He was awake during dressing change, awake to eat a few jars of baby food, awake to watch Cars 2 and awake to go potty, but that was it, maybe 3 hours total. He hasn't had a fever since this morning which is good. His anc dropped to 0.7 so he got GCSF today. Hopefully we will only be here for a few days. via Help Anton http://ift.tt/1FrhXfl May 21, 2015 at 10:19PM

Day +56 Anton was acting totally normal yesterday and woke up with a 101.8 degree temperature this morning. Anything over 100.5 is an automatic admission to the hospital. He is not feeling good at all. via Help Anton http://ift.tt/1AhEMmQ May 21, 2015 at 11:11AM

Day +55 We went to clinic today and got to take Wita with us!!! Anton doesn't have many open wounds but the ones he does have are very infected. We cultured the wounds and they put him back on IV antibiotics that we are able to do at Ronald McDonald House. I'm praying these antibiotics start kicking in soon so we don't end up back in the hospital. His infections make his numbers drop (at least that's what I think is the cause). His wbc and anc are both a little over 1 today. We were able to move into a new space at Ronald McDonald and we are pretty excited about it. Well not about moving but about having more space. It has high ceilings, a stair case that leads to a loft style room which has 2 beds in it and we have a separate bedroom downstairs. After we were done in clinic Wita and I brought Anton back to Jason, then we picked Kenya up from school and had a girls day. We went to chili's and then to target. We had a blast!! Today is Baby Reid's first birthday! That kid has been through more in his first year of life than most people have been on their entire lives. I love that baby and his family so much and I'm so thankful I got to see him on his birthday. After we got back from target I took Baby Reid's big brother and sister downstairs so they could watch a movie with us, then all the kids went outside to play. Kenya and Judah loved playing with them and are looking forward to seeing them again soon. Anton seems to be feeling well and is enjoying time with Papa T and Wita. Several families from RMH has gone home these past few days and several more are about to go home. It is so sad to see them go but I'm so happy they are able to return back to their families. We will miss them all dearly!!! I hope y'all are doing well!!! - May 21, 2015 at 12:15AM http://ift.tt/1r2lUi4
