So far so good

So far everything is going fine. Evan continues to get an IV infusion every few days.

On Monday, they did some lab work and the results came back very positive. His bilirubin count was back down to a 2.2 and his other liver function counts are almost back down to normal. This was great news but does not mean we are out of the woods yet.

They say that the thearaspher treatment will continue to be active for another month or so. During that time the liver tissue around the tumor will continue to be affected we just don't know how much it will be affected.

For now Evan is feeling great and he even put up our Christmas lights yesterday. He has energy thanks to the steroids that he is taking for a short period of time. It is so good to see him active and happy. His eyes are still a little yellow but they are getting better.
