Questions..... No Answers....

Eric's blood counts have taken a downward turn again...

He had a bone marrow biopsy today and extensive testing has been ordered on the aspirate and biopsy sample. Cytogenetics and chimerism testing is lengthy so we we don't expect to have answers for a while. In the meantime, we're monitoring counts closely and transfusing as needed.

In the good news column, Eric feels good and fully intends to continue as usual and wait out this, what we hope is, 'a blip'.

Six Months

Eric is 6 month post transplant (transplant #2 that is) and he's doing great. Lately his challenges have been pretty normal day in and day out problems - rainy camping trips, a burnt out video card in his PC, classes that are a bit mundane. We are constantly thankful that our lives are returning to normal (whatever that is...).

I will continue to update the blog on occasion, but if you don't see updates, please assume that all is well and that we are busy living our lives!
