Day -5 Donor Ready

Today Noah had his second round of fludarabine chemotherapy. He’s feeling hungry (from the steroids) and still feeling fine. He is receiving steroids to avoid nausea and vomiting. He had school, worked on a wooden car (he’s building for Lucas), played games, hallway walks, and talked to all of the nurses.

Today Lucas had his last set of blood Labs and took his first set of Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) shot given by Daddy. The G-CSF shot is given to Lucas to increase the number of blood cells in order to get ready for transplant. Daddy has to give Lucas a G-CSF shot for the next two days.
