Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +15

The new donor cells continue to engraft! YAY!

The doctors believe neither the Mucositis or GVHD will worsen at this point. The Mucositis will just take time to go away following the final dose of anti-rejection meds on day +11 and the GVHD is responding well to the Prednisone.

Today I'm going to ask my mom if there is a way to send anonymous thank you cards to Tami's donor. I'll keep you posted on what I learn.

Update 5:00 pm: Today has been a quiet day of rest for Tami. Her meds are making her very drowsy so aside from a red blood transfusion she's been able to take it easy.

Update 7:25 pm: Unfortunately Tami's throat was still sore today. It is the physical act of swallowing that causes the pain :( 

Due to the high risk of infection and her physical discomfort, Tami is not able to have visitors at this time.
