Day +17 | Stem Cell Transplant
WE HAVE FULL CHIMERISM!!!!!!
—Chimerism testing (engraftment analysis) is to see how many donor cells vs patient are present. Usually it’s 70/30....
Result: ALL DONOR CELLS!!!
They said it’s unusual how quickly he engrafted. LOOK AT GOD 🙌
Hemoglobin 7.1 (he will get transfusion today)
Chest X-ray looked good today.
Ultrasound still waiting for results 🙏
He can still have GVHD with full chimerism. Our doctor doesn’t think it’s that, but at this point we have to rule out everything since he’s still hurting - so scope on Tuesday for biopsy in GI tract. SIOD comes along with a slough of GI issues so we’re praying it’s that & not GVHD 🙏
If not and it is indeed GVHD, we have a plan to knock that out too.
But today we don’t worry, we will celebrate FULL DONOR CELLS 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌
