Update on Jen

I know it's been a while since I've posted, but life has gotten pretty busy!  I'm gaining strength, and now there are so many more things I can do! I've been able to bake a little bit, and enjoy the outdoors a great deal!
I still have weekly appointments in the pediatric Hematology/Oncology at University Hospitals.  My white cell, hemoglobin, platelets and other blood counts have recovered nicely!
I am still immunocompromised though, and so continue to be careful with my exposure and diet.

My milestone will be T+100; 100 days from my bone marrow transplant.  That date falls the first week of July.  The first 100 days are the most critical days of a BMT.  At that marker I will need a PET and CT scan (to determine if there is any heightened cell activity, indicating cancer), an echocardiogram (to determine heart function), and a PFT (pulmonary function test, to determine lung function).  My PET and CT scans are currently scheduled for July 5th.  Please pray that those scans will come out clean.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support!
Our family on Memorial Day!

  1. We saw Joseph at the Memorial Day parade in Brecksville. He was a very good patrolman and did not even look or smile (as I'm sure he was instructed!) despite our best efforts. Wish we had caught you all there too! Love you.
