+311

He's been feeling under the weather. He's cranky and more tired. He's restless during the night too, but still sleeping through the night. I might take him in today to have his hemoglobin tested.

He has a rash on his face which I think is skin GVHD. Someone on the GVHD board recommended Emu Oil, so I'm using that and it's helping. It has not gotten worse. At first I thought it was a rash from the many strawberries he was eating. I reduced the number to one strawberry per day and the rash is still there. I don't think it is heat related either. The fact it is not getting worse is positive. The doctor is not concerned.

Happy Anniversary!!! Hope the next ten bring you lots of good times and much less worry. The pictures look fantastic. Could it be that the steroid taper is what is making David cranky? Jacob had a really had time going to every other day!

Shimmy is really cranky this morning as well, perhaps it has to do with this stage post transplant...
David looks great on the photos!
Thinking of you,
