Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

2nd Week of Testing

The second week just flew by. Monday we had more labs taken as well as stool and urine tests. Everything came back pretty good. He may have a virus in his stool called adenovirus. This is a very serious virus. However, the doctor assures us that it is found in almost everyone's stool and that they will follow it very closely.

Tuesday, Aaron had his biggest procedure yet. He was put under anesthesia. He had a bone marrow biopsy to check his bone marrow for any additional problems. He then had a bronchoscopy. The doctors looked at his anatomy and took samples of pulmonary fluid. They found a couple of nodules near his larynx. This explains the funny sounds he makes periodically. They were caused from when he was previously intubated.

Wednesday, Aaron had his infusion.

All the test results continue to be really good. Now we just wait to be admitted on December 20th.

  1. So great to hear about all the great results. I'll keep my fingers crossed on the virus-hoping it does not cause any problems. So proud of Aaron! Miss you guys!
