Tristan did a bit better today! He walked for the first time in a week with a walker. He ate a bit more. His healthy cells are slowly rising. HE IS day 22/32 INDUCTION CYCLE. OUR GOAL IS THAT HE WILL BE STRONG/HEALTHY ENOUGH TO COME HOME FOR A FEW WEEKS BEFORE STARTING ROUND 2 OF CHEMO/IRRADIATION. WE WILL HAVE A MORE DEFINED PLAN WHEN WE LEARN IF WE HAVE A BONE MARROW MATCH. We swabbed and now are waiting to hear and praying for a full match. We have along road ahead, but we take this as progress!!
