Sliding.... Day 156 15APR09

Today felt like we were sliding downhill. Joshua's ANC is down to 582 and his stomach was bothering him all day. Renee and I are both getting concerned about the stomach pains. It has been bothering him since the beginning of March. Enough already. He is barely eating again and every time he does he stomach hurts. So far we don't know why or how to really make it any better. I was really hoping to get Joshua home tomorrow but I think that it is a slim chance at best. His temp only got up to 100.6 today but his counts are dropping. If he slips below 500 they will keep him until he can claw his way back up. They tried Malox today to help his stomach but its just made him throw up. I know Josh is getting frustrated and he wants to feel better. We want to know how to get him there. Renee is going to talk to Dr. Tebbi in the morning about getting Josh a CT scan of his abdomen and consulting with a GI specialist. Maybe then we will have a clearer picture of what is going on.
