Facebook update from Help Anton

Praising God, for the first time in a long time I have nothing but good things to post! Anton is off of high flow oxygen! Which means he is able to drink again. He loves asking whomever happens to be in our room to give him drinks. Dr. Kate, Nurse Cate, and Kendall happily obliged. In fact Anton said "I like to drink with Dr. Kate", ha!!! Anton drank 810 mls of fluid yesterday so finally at the end of the day I decided to see if he would drink formula and he did! The pictures where it looks like he is drinking and on oxygen his oxygen was turned off while he drank. They started Anton on a high dose of steroids to treat his graft vs host a few days ago. Anton hasn't had a fever in the past day and a half, like NO fever!!! His skin also looks a lot better. They are only giving Anton TPN for 12 hours a day to give his body a break from it and the goal is to get him off of TPN soon! And the best news is yesterday and today his normal, happy, funny, personality came back. He was happy and playing all day yesterday and woke up just as happy today. It has been such a joy to get to play with and talk to Anton again!!! - October 08, 2015 at 10:14AM
