Tuesday August 3rd, 2010 - Bone Marrow Biopsy

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.
