Day +9, +10, +11

Aiden is doing great! On day +9 the docs told us that his white counts were 200. While they don't technically count it yet because anything under 300 can fluctuate a lot. But we are really excited because there is some activity that shows that the new marrow is working! YAY Aiden!!
As you can see from all the pictures Aiden has a lot of bruises. His platelets are really low and that is why he is bruising so easily. We didn't even know that it was a really common thing so the first time he bonked his head in his crib and it immediately turned into a big goose egg bruise we were kinda surprised. He has been having transfusions about every 3 or 4 days cause platelets are one of the first things they burn through when the body isn't consistently replacing it. Crazy!

We are doing really well and so excited to see some activity in his white cells! He did spike a fever on day +11 at night so they are treating it and did more blood cultures to make sure it isnt an infection! Fever is also common when you engraft so we are going to keep our fingers crossed that that is why he spiked a fever.
