Day +3

Jacob's platelets were down to 10 this morning, so he received a platelet transfusion. His blood pressure was starting to trend high, so he had to start on medication for that. He also received his 2nd dose of methotrexate to prevent gvhd.

Jacob is getting stronger. The physical therapists were impressed with how well he did. They helped him walk around the room doing a scavenger hunt and he also played kicking the ball to them. I'm happy that his leg muscles are strengthening so quickly. The p.t.'s said Jacob is really pushing himself. One of them asked if Jacob was always this happy and good natured. She then said she hoped to one day have a child of her own like Jacob.

I was pleasantly surprised to see him go to town on his chocolate Easter bunny.
