Blog for Jackie Sue while at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. UPDATED. This blog now covers her progress after her mini-allo MUD transplant. Her transplant was the first one to be performed by the Mayo Clinic.

Tuesday noon

The entire team of docs came in this AM to examine Jackie. They seemed to think things were going well and seemed pleased. She is scheduled for another round of chemo beginning about 3:00 PM today. They will be using Cytoxin (sp?). It is another drug used in combination with Rituxin to fight CLL.

All-in-all Jackie is feeling pretty well. She is tired and all the IVs make her look and feel like a pin cushion. Yesterday they drew 14 vials of blood. Today they drew another 6. It is no wonder they may need to transfuse more red cells!

I've located a computer in the Family Room. It is a normal PC and has a high speed connection. It sure beats trying to blog using my cell phone. Hopefully I can use it often to keep everyone updated.
