Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

Dr Levy

Today was a productive day. Dr Levy was on service and we love him. He admittedly says he knows little about BMT, gvhd, cyclosporine, and how to treat Aaron. Yet he is the best doctor Aaron has ever had here!

Aaron's lead doctor was on service over the weekend and did NOTHING! Aaron came back positive for a bacteria and he would not treat it. His IGG level was 254 (dangerously low) and he did nothing! I begged for them to do something, but he does not want to make a decision.

Dr Levy got Aaron on treatment and called Cincinnati three times to clarify what should be done and set up a medical flight to get Aaron back to Cincy tomorrow.

Aaron's fevers are on the rise and I do worry. I am hoping that because this is a bacteria, they can kill it with antibiotics. Aaron is unable to get rid of viruses because there aren't treatments for most of them.

Thank you all for your support. We need it!

This is Aaron doing his own mouth care and laughing.
