Words from Brittany on Transplant Date

Brittany has given us an update: "We received word! The transplant is scheduled for December 10th. Tony [Anthony] will check into the hospital on December 3rd to receive chemo and Full Body Radiation. He received his last platelet transfusion (pre-transplant) yesterday. This time it only took 5 hours instead of 7 1/2 [They had to do 2 transfusions after his latest Chemo treatment. Not a positive thing. This is the first time he has been this low for this long. And Britt is pretty amazing entertaining Jack at a hospital for that long :-)] Today his white and red blood cell counts were both up.  We are still waiting for his platelet counts to come up, but he is not in danger of spontaneously bleeding to death anymore thanks to yesterdays transfusion."
      Thank you Brittany!
