Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +31

Some of the test results from Tami's bone marrow biopsy are back and her marrow is now 99% donor marrow! This is really fantastic news. Her Doctor said that he expects it will be 100% the next time they do a marrow biopsy.

Tami does need to up her hydration. Each day she receives fluids: saline in the mornings and magnesium hydration through her catheter at night. It was 1 liter per day before, I don't know what the new amount will be but I'll let you know when I find out.

The temperature the past few days have been hot, still in the 90's. Not a typical summer in Seattle.


  1. So glad to hear she's doing well and her donor cells are taking over. :) Hope they get her hydration levels up. Rooting she continues to do well. :)

  2. This is fantastic news. Congratulations Tami!!! I must say, I'm a little jealous, but not complaining. HOW DID YOU DO THAT? I'm three years post-transplant and my white count and platelets haven't ever reached normal range. I'm so happy for you. Continue to be careful in public and when you have visitors! Take Care!!

  3. Yay! Congratulations Tami! So glad to hear the positive news! Hope the great news continues!!!!
