Well you know Alex likes to keep them on their toes!!!! Overall our labs looked great. His blood counts were awesome! It helps to get a transfusion right before you escape from the bloodsucking hospital! His pancreatic enzymes are the lowest they have been in months (although still not normal). So we were pretty happy.
The only glitch was his triglycerides. We have been struggling with his triglyceride level for some time and have continually lowered the amount of lipids (fats) he is getting with his TPN. Well they came back yesterday at 442!!! Extremely high. We are rechecking them this morning to see if it was possibly a lab error. Once we get them back we will consult with GI once again.
Other then that we continue to wait for the date we are to return to Houston, but believe it will be the first of February.
Thank you so very much to those of you who have generously donated to our fundraiser. Every penny is a step closer to finding a cure for Alex. It is greatly appreciated!
