James’ New Stem Cells have Engrafted!


Hello Everyone,


The stem cells James received during his transplant have engrafted into his marrow and his body has begun to produce blood. This is wonderful news, the last of the major milestones as far as the transplant is concerned.


Once the body begins to produce cells it takes only a couple of days to produce enough blood to be at acceptable levels. Because of this, the doctors expect James to be discharged from the hospital this Friday or Saturday.


Overall James’ transplant and recovery have gone as well as possible. He experienced minimal side effects from the chemo, handled his low blood counts well, and has been able to keep active and nourished. It has by no means been a cake-walk, but he has moved through each stage like a trooper.

We hope you all are happy and healthy.

Love,
Stacey

Terrific news. James is now a healthy person with a weak system, as compared to an unhealthy person. That's huge.
I think about this donor in Europe a lot.
Humanity at its best.

James, I am so happy that you will be home by the end of the week! It is going to be day 100 before we all know it! So glad your transplant has gone so well. Love, Heather
