+1130 Cataracts and Skin Looking Good

David saw the eye doctor today. He must like the eye doctor because he was so cooperative! It was amazing. They do at least 10 different tests and he did great! The bad news is that the doctor found, in each eye, 1mm cataracts. It's not in his line of vision so that's good. They will not do anything about it, except see him in 6 months. The cataracts are from chronic steroid use, not GVHD.

His skin is looking pretty good actually! He is still on Sirolimus. If his skin is looking good for another 2 weeks then Dr. Agarwal will taper the steroids ever so slowly.

Thanks for your concern and constant prayers.

Aimee and Michael

Hi Aimee,

Great news on the skin. Hope that David can get off the steroids soon and keep those cataracts where they are right now.

Best Wishes,

Hi Aimee -- Just stopped by to catch up on David's progress. Glad to hear that you're seeing some improvement on the GVHD. I spoke to a woman the other day that suffered from GVHD post transplant for 5 years and then it suddenly went away with no explanation. Let's hope! Your new surroundings look lush and lovely. I hope it helps to bring you peace on the harder days. Always in my prayers.

God Bless you and David. Give that boy a big hug and kiss from me. My sisters tale about her two boys with WAS hasnt turned out as promising as yours.

Thanks for sharing.
