Brock Rocks

in the hospital

Brock woke up yesterday morning with a fever so we took him to clinic to draw blood cultures and check a cbc.  The cbc showed that he needed blood, and that he was neutropenic.  Since it’s been so long since he’s been neutropenic, here’s a refresher.  Neutropenic = dangerously low immune system.  It also means that he had to be admitted for iv antibiotics.

As long as the blood cultures stay negative and he doesn’t have anymore fevers, then we’ll be able to go home in a few days.


  1. :o( I am SORRY that Brock had to be admitted!!! At least it was after Christmas. I pray his counts rise SOON and you will ALL be HOME to ring in the New Year!!!

    ♥♥ Love ya!! ♥♥

  2. I was so sorry to read last night that he had to go back in. But, this morning when I was taking my son to a post-op appointment for an orthopedic surgery he had I thought I saw your husband and daughter get off of the elevators by the parking garage. I almost asked him if he was Brock’s dad (we don’t know you and have only seen pictures, I’ve just been praying for Brock since Nov. 2009 because I heard about him from the Danners), but chickened out and now I wished I had. It was about 9:00 a.m. this morning. Anyway, just wanted to let you know there are many, many people that you don’t even know caring about you and lifting Brock up to our heavenly Father. Take care.

    • Yep, that was them! You should’ve said hi! It wouldn’t hbe been the first time we’ve been approached by a ‘stranger’ that knows Brock. Thank you for praying for us for so long!

  3. Okay – today is 14 January 2011 and I have not heard anything since the end of December. How is Brock? How is the whole family? I should think that no news is good news but with all you have been through, I am hesitant to rely on that old adage. I pray that everything is going well and that God is continuing His miracles. You, Brock, Jay, and Jaycie are in my prayers daily.
