Hey everyone, it’s transplant day +23!
Unfortunately we have had another 24 hours of fevers. They are continuing to draw blood cultures every 24 hours to check for bacterial infections but so far they have all been negative.
On a happy note, Brandon’s liver enzymes are continuing to trend downward! Due to this, they have decided to hold off on the liver biopsy for now. Yay! At least this is one thing we can skip for now.
Tomorrow they will be removing and replacing Brandon’s central venous catheter (CVC) with a new one. They think it is possible that a small amount of bacteria could be hiding inside the line that they are not picking up in blood cultures due to the strong antibiotics. I am hoping that this solves the mysterious fevers!
I will continue to keep everyone updated with Brandon’s progress. I am hoping that things will start to improve throughout the weekend. Thank you all for your love and support.
