Day +14. Casey is actually feeling a little better today. His white blood count went up to .2, so it is still nothing to get excited about. Hopefully it is a sign of the stem cells engrafting. He has developed a rash, but that is to be expected. His body is going through a transition of the new cells taking over and your body sees something foreign and tries to fight off. That is what they call graft vs. host disease (or GVH). I am told you need to go through a bit of GVH so your immune system does not reject the new cells.
Meanwhile we are just hanging out, doing daily laps, and looking forward to spring.
