Before transplant Mary-E went through this long and complicated process. There were tests done and re-done. They want these kids to be healthy enough to stand the process. During that evaluation we found that her body had fully recovered from her first encounter with leukemia.
We start the process today. Most of it will be next week but today she visits with a dentist. He will be assessing the damage done by all of the treatment over the last year. WE are hoping it is not too bad.
The body is an amazing thing. It fights back and repairs itself in many ways. I am always amazed at how it all works. We know she does not have GVH in her mouth. That is more of a blessing then one can imagine. While my daughter does not talk about what is happening to her she does look online for the sorts of things. She knows what is out there.
So today we are off to do something really really difficult. We are mailing a package at the post office. Now that is a challenge.
