As I mentioned before my grandson has A-plastic Anemia.
Tripp had two broviac lines installed on Saturday (Out-patient procedure). He named them SpongeBob and Patrick.
He was admitted to UNC Children’s Hospital yesterday. Today, he had his first dose of radiation therapy. It’s done under light anesthesia. Three more consecutive doses of radiation and then 5 days of Chemo before he gets the bone marrow transplant.
So today is day -9 and begins the count-down to transplant day Jan 22.
This is one brave kid. No crying, little to no fear, very engaged in the process and asks the doctors lots of questions.

FYI – He wanted a buzz cut before all this started just in case he loses his hair.
Thank you all for your kind words and for keeping Tripp in your prayers.
