Day +97

Jacob's EBV count dropped from 2800 on Monday to 87 yesterday.  His immune system did that all on its own.  This is fantastic news.  They will not need to treat with Rituxan at this point.  I'm sure they will continue to monitor him to make sure he can keep the counts in check.

We will have a new adenovirus count this evening.  Monday he was at 450,000.  Hopefully, it continues to drop.

The team is working on having us discharged next Tuesday.  Then we could be heading home to California as early as the following week.  I'm so relieved that it looks like we will be back in time for Ethan to start school.  I missed the second half of his kindergarten year and that was hard for me... and for him, too, I imagine.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.  They mean so much to us.
