Update on Tami

Day +232 Post Transplant

I spoke to Tami yesterday by phone. The good news is there is no bad news persay. She continues to recover slowly but steadily.

Some of the pain in her joints has subsided slightly. There is a chance that this pain may be long term or permanent caused by the the chemo she received to prepare her for her transplant. Hopefully that won't be the case.

She is feeling better but is still too tired to be able to do the normal, everyday, things she would like to do. Because of a medication she is still taking she isn't driving yet. Being chauffeured around for the past year it will probably feel a little strange when she is able to finally start driving again.

On the good news front, she is not suffering from any active GVHD flare ups and her hair is continuing to grow back in :) Talking to her on the phone she sounds just like her old self. It's very comforting just to hear her voice.


  1. Thanks for the update. I'm so glad Tami is continuing to recover. It sounds like she's on the right road and doing fine. It's a long process so be patient. It'll be worth it in the long run. Take care and rest up. love, nancy

  2. Thank you Nancy. I also now feel she is on the right road. To be honest for the first three months I was concerned... But now I think it is just going to take time and Tami not pushing herself too hard until her body is ready to do more and she will be just fine.
