Barry Day +26 Update

Today is Day +26 after transplant. Barry's neutrophil counts dropped to 300 so everyone has to cover their face with a mask when they enter his room.  The doctors are going to give Barry some G-CSF to stimulate the production of his white blood cells.  Yesterday I mistakenly wrote that Barry was no longer getting lipids and nutrients from his Hickman catheter.  He is still feeding from his Hickman catheter but the plan is to slowly wean him off of the intravenous food.  One of the requirements for being discharged from the hospital is that he must be able to eat by mouth.  So far today, Barry has not eaten anything by mouth.
