Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

Dr. Sleasman

Dr. Sleasman is the pediatric Immunologist in Tampa. He has been directing Aaron's care since he was admitted to Arnold Palmer in September. He says Aaron looks great. Aaron has gained almost three pounds in three and a half weeks. He started walking without holding on yesterday. He walks all over the house. He babbles and babbles. Looking at him, you would never know he was sick!

Dr. Sleasman wants to do a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible. They began the HLA typing necessary for the bone marrow matching. The results should be back in 2 weeks. We should know by then if there is a match for Aaron. Please pray for Aaron that he can find a match. The doctor says the sooner Aaron has a transplant the less likely his body will develop a rejection to the transplant.

We met the transplant team. They are incredible people. Everyone was super nice and made us feel confident for Aaron's future.
