“Never give up. Great things take time.”
Hey everyone, it’s transplant day +21! We are officially 3 weeks past transplant, which means we are quickly approaching an important milestone. Reaching day +30 is a huge accomplishment and we are almost there!
Today has been another difficult day but we are doing our best to stay positive. More tests have come back negative and we still don’t have any answers about what is causing Brandon’s fevers. However, every test that is negative rules out another possibility. More tests are still pending and we should have more results tomorrow and in the days to come.
The doctors expect the antibiotics to work within 24 to 48 hours if the source of the fevers are bacterial. Although Brandon has been running fevers on and off throughout the day, they haven’t been as high or as frequent. I am hoping and praying that this is a sign that things are starting to turn around. We should know by tomorrow if the antibiotics are effective or not. If not, the doctors have a plan about what steps need to be taken next. Lets hope it doesn’t come to that!
Thank you all for your love, support, and prayers. We can feel it! We are so blessed to have such an amazing support system. I am looking forward to reporting good news tomorrow.
