3 November 2009

7 weeks today!

Before Jeremy came home on Gate Pass this morning, the doctor told us some wonderful news! Jeremy's Day 30 special blood results have come back, and they are all donor blood! This means that his new bone marrow has officially engrafted! Although we had suspected this because his body had started making white blood cells, the blood results are proof that it is the new bone marrow working (and not a recovery of his own bone marrow). Thanks to all who prayed about this for us!

The doctor has also scheduled Jeremy's first post-transplant bone marrow aspirate for Monday 16 November - we are hoping and praying that the results of this bone marrow aspirate will show absolutely no leukaemia cells. Jeremy will have to have regular bone marrow aspirates over the next year or so, to check that the leukaemia has not come back.
