Brock Rocks

xray, white count, and give forward

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 1:39 pm

– Brock needed blood yesterday. {Have you donated blood lately? Please do!}

– He had another chest xray this morning.  Still waiting on the results.

– His AGC {measure of his immune system} was down again to 100-something.  We need it to be above 500.

Things that need to happen for us to go home:
– no more fevers
– AGC up to 500 (or at least signs that it’s on it’s way up)
– chest xray to look clear
– blood cultures from saturday to show no growth for 48 hours

Even then, we’d be going home to do iv anbitiocis multiple (4? 6?) times a day.

I don’t think I’ve explicitly pointed this out, but Brock’s aunt has rallied our family and friends to donate to the Brock Hart Medical Fund at giveforward.com.  We spend about $1,000 each month on medicine, tube feeding supplies, copays, and past medical bills and the money that’s been raised will be a HUGE blessing to us.  Brock is featured on the Give Forward home page today and you can also see his personal page here.  Thank you so much for all you’ve done for us!  You make this road infinitely easier to travel and God has used you all to bless us many times over.  Thank you!

{Give Forward is a place where anyone can create a fundraiser for any number of reasons. Do you know someone with significant medical bills? You can be a blessing to them by starting a Give Forward page for them!}

  1. We are still thinking of your family, following your blog(s) and most importantly – praying for Brock. I hope the rest of your family stays “flu free” and that Brock has a speedy recovery and a short stay in the hospital. Happy Birthday to your sweet daughter! Sending many prayers your way…
