Hey everyone, it’s transplant day +22.
Not too much has changed over the last few days. Brandon is still running fevers and the doctors still don’t know what is causing them. More tests came back today, all were negative. At this point it has been 48 hours and the new antibiotics are either working slowly, or not working at all.
The doctors have discussed a few possible next steps, although I am not sure which will come first. One idea is that Brandon may have a bacterial infection in his central venous catheter (CVC). They may end up removing and replacing his CVC to rule this out as a possibility. Brandon’s liver enzymes are also elevated, so they have discussed doing a liver biopsy to test for an infection or early graph-verses-host disease. We should know more tomorrow about what’s next.
Thank you all for your love and support. I will continue to keep everyone updated on Brandon’s progress. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
