Day 10 - Evening Update

Everett received several fluids and a blood transfusion today. With all the extra fluids, this is certainly the chubbiest he's ever looked! The fever has persisted 101°–104° throughout the day, but his respiratory function, heart rate, and blood pressure still look great. A rash has appeared, so the Duke staff are hopeful this is an indication that the stem cells are beginning to grow (are engrafting) instead of his body battling an infection, but it's still too early to tell.
