Just wanted to give those who are following a quick update on Cameron:
Overall he is continuing to improve, but yesterday we suffered a little setback. Cameron's most recent set of lab results revealed that his hematocrit levels have dropped significantly and that his bone marrow has all but stopped producing red blood cells again. Normally this would mean another transfusion, but his doctors have decided to give his bone marrow a chance to "get its act together and start doing its job" on its own. If his levels don't increase by Monday, they'll do the transfusion. Despite all this, we're doing well and are enjoying the little guy a lot.
