I’ve been having stomach/colon issues off and on for a week. At my appointment with my doctors on Monday, my Eosinophls were high again, and with my stomach issues on top of that, they were concerned. I did find out a bit ago that I am eligible for the Grafts vs Host trial. They rate the situation 1-3 and I am a 2. Ugh. I have added 110mg of prednisone to my daily meds. I already feel better. I hope they can nip this in the bud quickly and effectively. I am going back for my routine check up Thursday at Emory and I should learn a lot more about next steps. It involves giving blood work on a regular basis for the duration of the clinical trial but seems pretty simple. I can get out of it any time. It is a way to learn more about what’s going on inside of me and to help others with this situation in the future.
I was so hoping and praying I would breeze by this Grafts vs Host disease but they have always said that a little bit of GVSD is a good thing. I am doing everything I can think of to stay healthy, eat well, try to gain weight, regular excersise and keep up with the outside world, including my office. This BMSCT process is up and down. Thank goodness for God’s goodness, love of my family and friends.

Every cell is well! Please continue praying for me! Thank you so much!
