Day 23 - mixed results and emotions

Brandon is feeling good today.
He had a few visitors which was nice....the nurse has already labeled him as a chatterbox :)

Numbers are great!
Hgb - 84
Platelets - 59!
WBC - 2.1

Normal reminder:
Hgb - 140-180
Plts - 150-400
WBC - 4-11

We walked around the unit and he stopped to chat with the nurses for a bit - now they can see how tall he really is :)

We also had some cuddle time which was selfishly amazing.

Unfortunately we did get some bad news today - Justin (Brandon's brother) is not a match for the bone marrow transplant. That would have been a great win.
But in true Brandon spirit he is refusing to think negatively as we begin the search through the International Bank. Keeping our fingers crossed and the positive thoughts coming.

Plan is to bring the kids by tomorrow for a visit - quite excited as Brandon is feeling so much better than past visits.

Hopes and spirits are high!!!
