Carter is taking a medicine that is gross and makes him hairy. He has developed an adorable fuzzy nose and prepubescent stach. We got a good report from the doctor today. His platelet count was up to 152 which I think might actually be normal. His other two counts were good too which means his baby cord blood is doing his body good. They were monitoring for viruses after last visit they saw some possible action but today everything is still down in a safe range and not a threat. Still pretty nervous about him getting sick, but keeping him masked up and sanitized seems to be doing the trick. He's getting a little bored but I'm sure this week he will feel better! Merry Christmas to all!

I'm late in posting about our release because I took some amazing photos the day we left the hospital but have yet to upload them with the chaos of the last few days. We left the hospital on Monday and brought Carter home. He was so happy to be back in his own room. He had crab and steak for dinner. The next day he started to have some pain when using the bathroom and also some blood, which they say can be from chemo or a virus. So we are waiting to hear back from that. On Monday he gets another biopsy of his bone marrow done to see how things are working and also he gets one of his lines removed. The doctor said his body is mostly donor cells.. she couldn't find the percentage but said it was high and she was happy. That shows that the transplant is taking and the donor cells. .the cells that work. .are doing their job! Giving him his meds at home freaks me out since there are so many. I also have to hook up his iv lines to various things. Everything is going ok though and Carter is eating like a madman. Just taking it one jam packed day at a time.
