Today was a good day for Mr. Rex.  He showed a lot of spunk and energy, and he was disconnected and able to roam free of the IV pole for several hours throughout the day.  He has regained an appetite, and he is tolerating increased G-Tube feedings.  The last positive bacteria culture was on 12/26, so we are hoping that he is beginning to shake the infection which has kept us here longer than we anticipated.  We will begin round 6 of chemo on Tuesday (if all goes according to plan), and his antibiotic will continue running. The 10 day countdown will begin once we are 48 hours out from a positive blood culture (which will hopefully be tomorrow evening).
