Almost ready to go home

Naaman is doing great with CAR-T as of today, Day 6.  His counts have dropped (they should with the infusion), he has diarrhea from the meds, and he has sharp mood swings. He isn’t spiking fevers or showing neurological symptoms which are the things we are most concerned about. 

If Cheeky keeps up the good response, we can go home on Friday, Day 10. Ten days out from infusion, if he hasn’t shown signs of CRS or seizure, he is okay to go home with precautions and has to stay very close to the hospital. Luckily Meriden is close enough that we don’t need to stay in a hotel or Ronald McDonald house in New Haven. This is exciting!
