We have an ANC! Go Cells Go!
We were very happy to hear that today with Sawyer’s labs he has an ANC (Absolute Neutrophil Count) of 64. That is still really low but after about a week and a half of having an ANC of 0 it’s progress and it should only go up from here. Sawyer did develop Mucositis in his mouth and throat which also comes with a significant amount of pain but it has been mostly controlled with the help of a PCA (patient-controlled analgesia). They did place a feeding tube into his belly but he has not been able to keep anything down so he has been receiving nutrients via IV. We are going to try and attempt the feeds again soon. 🤞🏻
Santa came to the hospital and brought presents for Sawyer and Calvin. We got special permission for Calvin to come up so they were able to open their presents together. Even though it was a short visit and Sawyer wasn’t feeling very well it was nice being all together. He was very excited about the new LEGOs he got and wanted (Mommy) to start building them right away.
Thank you all for your help this holiday season! Your support has meant so much to us and our family! We do not have enough words. We love you guys!
Thank you as always for reading. Please continue to keep Sawyer and our family in your prayers and intentions. Wishing you all the best in the New Year!
Until next time!
Jen, Jeremy, Sawyer, & Calvin
