Echo Update from his parents:

Echo is doing much better today. Eating good, drinking plenty of fluids, dialysis normal, and his labs indicated that he Red Blood Cell and Hemoglobin #’s will trend in the right direction. Unfortunately, Echo’s transplant date has been postponed for the 27th of June, due to his low RBC & HG #’s being too low and his Rhino Virus Infection. He is receiving a blood transfusion as we speak to boost his Iron, RBC, & HG #’s so that his body will have time to catch up with RBC reproduction.

We don’t know a specific date yet on transplant, but likely in the next 2-4 weeks. He will have to have labs drawn again in the coming days and HLA marker done again in a week. Hopefully he will not develop any new antibodies between now and transplant.

We are supposed to be discharged later this evening and head home. Thanks again to everyone reaching out, praying, and checking on us and our family during this time.
