Questions..... No Answers....

Eric's blood counts have taken a downward turn again...

He had a bone marrow biopsy today and extensive testing has been ordered on the aspirate and biopsy sample. Cytogenetics and chimerism testing is lengthy so we we don't expect to have answers for a while. In the meantime, we're monitoring counts closely and transfusing as needed.

In the good news column, Eric feels good and fully intends to continue as usual and wait out this, what we hope is, 'a blip'.

Ugh - sorry to hear this, Kathy. Hoping that it is indeed a blip. Don't know if it's any consolation but W's counts were up and down and indeed 'all over the place' for quite a while post-transplant and some of his counts are still not great even 2 years on.......waiting with you all for answers...........Vx

Thinking of you and Eric, Kathy.
Hoping and praying that this is just a small detour, so Eric can continue on with all his normal life of classes and social life.

Keep us posted.
You guys are always in my thoughts,

Love,
Bek

AAAAHHHHH, I'm sorry to hear this news. Hopefully it's just a blip, as you say, and things will be on an upward trend very soon. Big hugs to all of you, Alison (Adrienne's mom)
