Thursday May 3rd

Surgery Update

We have been told that unless one of the cultures shows some sort of infection late tonight we will be on for surgery Friday morning at 9:00 am. The theory is that the fevers have been caused by excessive white blood cell counts due to the triple shots of the drug used to raise his white counts for the very successful stem cell harvesting last week. As the white blood cells die off in such large quantities the side effect is most likely the fever. We will post an update late today or early tomorrow morning if anything changes but at this point it is a go. I will attempt to post updates throughout the day tomorrow as they are given to us from the surgical team. We truly appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers as they will provide us the strength we will all need throughout the day tomorrow and the days following while Liam recovers.
