Bob's second bone marrow stem cell transplant recorded a 100% success rate!  His red and white blood cells and platelets returned to normal and the bone marrow reading  and blood type are showing100% donor !  But Bob still lacks an immune system and there always seem to be complications.  

Most of you know that Bob experienced some complications at the beginning of March--graft vs. host disease, C-diff, and norovirus at the same time--and had to be air lifted back to OHSU  where he was in quarantine for a month.   Since that episode, things have been very positive, but there always seem to be a few hiccups!  We're currently in "hiccup" mode, which is why we're back on Caring Bridge.  Bob is back in the hospital with a yeast infection that makes it difficult for him to eat and periodically running a  high fever with no obvious source.
We continue to need you to send your positive thoughts, prayers, and well wishes our way and/or share them on this site.  This will always be a challenging journey for both of us, and we appreciate your on-going support!
