After checking out what the bunny brought, Eli had a little egg hunt with daddy :)
|It's kinda hard to see but there's an egg down by his right hand|
Our little fighter has been such a champ and is doing so well considering all things. He has continued to eat really well on his own which has pleased his doctors quite a bit. Unfortunately he's starting to develop mucositis which is a side effect of the chemo. It typically starts in the tummy and then sores often develop throughout the throat and mouth. Some cases are worse than others so we are hoping his stays more mild. Eli has always been a great eater and still has the desire to eat but every time he swallows he just starts crying and can't finish :( He will likely start IV nutrition tomorrow to give his tummy and entire GI tract a break until he can handle eating on his own. We're hoping he doesn't have to be on the IV nutrition for too long because sometimes it can be difficult getting kids to eat again when they haven't had to for so long.
Aside from the mucositis, Eli is such a happy baby. He's sleeping well and handling everything else great. Today is day +6 and his numbers are all still zero which is expected. The waiting game continues until he engrafts!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
Fight on, little Eli!
