Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +19

This afternoon Tami will leave the hospital for the first time in weeks since her transplant began. She will continue to go in to the hospital each day for blood tests and transfusions as needed but her overall progress is so good that she can now move back to her on campus apartment! This is a very significant step in her recovery and we are just thrilled. 

The steroids for her Graft vs. Host Disease are still exhausting her and they are expecting her to be on them for at least three more weeks. But as they taper down the dosage she should begin to feel better bit by bit.

  1. Hurray, Tami! So glad to hear her neutrophil count is up to 500 now. Keep on engrafting, donor cells!
