Day +7.  Today is one week since Casey received his transplant and all is well.  He has developed mucositis, which is gives him sores in his mouth.  It makes it hard for him to eat, not that he has much of an appetite to begin with.  Big Bob brings ice cream bars in for him every day.  He has no problem eating them.  Isn't it amazing, no matter how bad you feel, ice cream always tastes good.  I hope you enjoyed the photos I posted of his transplant.  Casey's white blood count is 0.1 which is as low as it goes.  They gave him a shot of neupogen tonight which will boost the growth of his cells, but it will take a few days to take hold.  From here on out it is all new cells taking over.


  1. Gotta love that ice cream!!!! We love the pictures and all the updates, thank you so much Peggy, gotta love technology. Hang in there Casey, before you know it you will be eating burgers and such and back on that pool deck. Bet you can't wait for those lovely meals at those lovely swim meets, yum, yum!!!

  2. Thanks for the pictures and updates. Still a smile on Casey's face, we can all learn from this!!!!!
