OMAHA, NEBRASKA -- 10-year-old A.J. Nye has been back in Nebraska for about a week after some blood test results showed possible complications. Now he's showing signs of bouncing back. Here's his mother's e-mailed update from Thursday, April 14th.
"Hello Everyone, We have good news, A.J.'s labs today showed that his liver numbers are getting better! So...... Monday's Bile Duct Study is canceled! YEAH!"
"Now it's on to the next thing, A.J.'s monthly immune globulin infusion is tomorrow instead of Monday, now. We'll go down to the treatment center, they'll insert a peripheral i.v. and run the infusion over about 4 hours while we sit and watch t.v. and he'll get frequent vitals and stuff. After that they'll take the i.v out and we'll go enjoy our weekend."
"Then, Monday (18th) he has labs again and we'll see how those numbers look and go from there. Hopefully, I pray, they'll be even better! That will be awesome!"
"Other than that, not much to report, he's still eating like a horse and looking and feeling great! He amazes me everyday! I'll keep you posted and send out some more pictures soon, I promise. I hope you enjoy the few I took at the Omaha Children's Museum the other day - he's so cute! He had a lot of fun that rainy day. God Bless! Love, Allison and A.J."
Nye has been in and out of the hospital after doctors transplanted his liver and small bowel in January. He was born with a condition that caused his intestines to develop outside his body.
