HUP visit

Good visit; they did not have to do another bone marrow. they are going to do a peropheral blood graft analysis. the skin rash is improving so they are reducing the steroids. the viral infection[CMV] is gone,and i will be stopping the antiviral drug this thursday. my only complaint is the shakes; hopefully these will lessen since they are drug related. we did receive a letter from the donor. interestingly, to stay annonymous the letter has to be sent through a third party. the letter shows that he is computer literate, resides in Germany, is european, and his first name is Mikael. mo and i will send him a letter thanking him for his great gift. thank you for your prayers. bob

Dr. Mazzola, It sounds like you are doing well except for the shakes. I hope they go away soon. That is nice that you can write to your donor. Take Care! Linda Vince
