We are thankful to be seeing small improvements today. His hemoglobin is holding steady and his white blood cell count climbed to 3.4. They were able to get him a smaller mask, which he likes. He is still needing a lot of breathing support from the bipap. He did get to have some clear fluids this afternoon, which was a real blessing. He has not been able to have anything by mouth since Tuesday, so he was thankful for even a little fluid.
The hemotologist took him off of Imuran because that can affect bone marrow. We are hoping that will help his blood numbers. Imuran has been keeping the Churg-Strauss syndrome under control the last couple of years, so please pray about this.
Thank you for your continued prayers.
