Not better yet
Well, Ben had his blood checked (which he was very nervous about because he no longer has his PICC line so now they need to take it the old fashioned way) and results were not what we wanted. He is neutropenic again. This is not totally unexpected but obviously not what we had been hoping for. The nasal swabs and the cultures they started on Thursday were negative, so this is probably a virus and it has just caused his ANC to go down. We will continue to give him antibiotics and Mercaptapurine but everything else is still on hold.
