Today is day +27 after transplant. Here is a picture of Barry this morning (Tuesday May 4th, 2010) while he is eating his favorite baby food, chicken and gravy. Barry is slowly able to drink soy milk and eat chicken and gravy by mouth. Meanwhile, he is still getting lipids and nutrients fed into his Hickman catheter.
Today's blood labs showed that the G-CSF helped boost his white blood cells tremendously.
My name is Barry and I was born on April 9th, 2009. I have acute biphenotypic leukemia and I want to educate others about becoming a potential bone marrow donor. I passed away peacefully on Thursday August 5, 2010 at 1:05AM at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital with my mom, dad, and aunt by my side.
