Preliminary results from today's bone marrow biopsy show that Barry's marrow is full of blasts and very few healthy cells. This is very bad news. His fevers persist and he is feeling very very uncomfortable. His recent CT scan on Sunday night showed lesions in his liver. Doctors are now treating this infection with a broad spectrum of antibiotics and anti-fungal medicine.
Here is a photo of Barry this morning. The photo shows Barry's right eye swelling. Last week it was the left eye that was swelling.
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.
