Spring is in the Air

Sun is shining, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and Brandon is engrafting!!

The numbers are looking good (poo poo) - so good that even the Drs are surprised with the results -
Hgb - 115
WBC - 2.3
Neutrophils - 1.1
Platelets - 294

Brandon's mouth and throat are healing slowly so he is able to eat and drink a little bit now - good thing as he is getting way to skinny for me :)

He is experiencing some Graft vs Host Disease (GVHD) in the form of a skin rash on his body - this is actually a positive as it shows that the new immune system is working and recognizing foreign objects (in this case Brandon). They will keep this under control with medication.

2 days until Brandon's birthday and he is determined to be home to celebrate - what a gift that would be!!
