Back to PCMC

Well today is the big day when things start up again. We go at 1:30 to get a bone marrow aspirate in order to determine what condition his bone marrow is in. Andrew still has low neutrophil counts but since it has been two weeks the doctors still want to bring him back in to figure out what is going on. Most likely he will be admitted tomorrow (Friday) for his second round of treatment. For Lizzie this time has been quite nerve racking because the results of this aspirate determine whether or not Andrew needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that he has gone into remission and so he won't need a bone marrow transplant.


  1. We will be anxiously awaiting the results from the bone marrow aspirate. Oh little Andrew we hope and pray you are in remission. Good luck with round #2.

  2. We are praying for Andrew to be in remission! We will look forward to seeing you guys tomorrow when you are admitted. We're still in Room 4408! Good luck for Round #2!

  3. Turns out they're keeping us home for longer... His ANC is still 300 :(
