Day +7 (One week later ...)

Hunter's nose bleed last night finally stopped/clotted after about an hour. He quickly fell asleep and snored his way through most of the night. He received a platelet transfusion before midnight and his level rose nicely. He woke up this morning energized and happy. The doctors are amazed by how well he is doing. The Attending Physician looked at Hunter today and said, "Are you sure you had a transplant?" However, we remain cautiously optimistic and realize things will most likely get worse before they get better.

In the meantime, Hunter has made friends with another patient and her family. She is a seventeen year old high school student from Washington who spoils him with lollipops, which are the only things he considers eating. He remains on around the clock IV nutrition.
