100 Days

We just returned from Chicago last night after a long day of testing. The tests were done because it has been (almost) 100 days since my allergenic bone marrow transplant. Tests ran all day, a full skeletal survey, pulmonary function, and a bone marrow biopsy. There was also a visit with the Nurse Practitioner, sitting in for the doctor. Everything seems to be going well, and my recovery is moving along as well as or even better than expected. I was concerned about a rash I have developed since this could be a sign of graft vs. host disease or GVHD. But, there are no other symptoms, and everyone in Chicago agreed that this was probably not GVHD, just dermatitis. They will know more after all test results are in. I am feeling better everyday, getting stronger and able to do more. Everything seems to be on track, and hopefully Poindexter is down and out for good! One small thing though, I would not recommend a 5 hour car ride immediately following a bone marrow biopsy. OUCH!
