Platelets - 442
Height - 93cm

David's been doing pretty well. Today he had Gammunex IVIG without any problems.

The NP said we could give him one of the following probiotics: Culturelle or Lactinex.

Doctor Weinberg looked me in the eye and announced "He has Chronic Graft-vs-Host Disease." David will be on medications for a long time unless God provides a miracle.

The stool samples did not grow rotovirus or c-diff. We are waiting for the other cultures, if any.

Hard news to hear. So sorry that you are still dealing with GVHD and that you will be for awhile. Hopefully, his cells and body learn to co-exist soon.

Thank you for reaching out to me on the GVHD site. I forwarded your email to my husband and family-it made me feel a little safer too. You were so sweet to even reply to me with all that you have going on!
David and his sisters are so adorable. I love the SPF swimsuits! I have invested in sunscreened clothing too!
