Again, I write from Children's. Aidan was admitted to the ICU this afternoon. Upon waking this morning, he was vomitting blood. Already today, they have transfused blood and platelets. When a patient is actively bleeding, they run a lab to test clotting times. Aidan's were double what they should be (meaning it is taking him a lot longer for his blood to clot). Of course, this puts him at risk of bleeding anywhere. So, we are in the ICU to have him closely monitored. No one has given us a clear reason as to why the elevated level. I'm sure that there will be many more tests run tomorrow.
His chemo cycle a couple of weeks ago went well. It was, thankfully, uneventful this time. He will have another full MRI on 6/14 and will go to stem cell transplant shortly thereafter.
Please keep Aidan in your prayers. We are hoping for a very short stay here in the ICU.
I will update you as I am able.
