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.

Monday +19 (3:30 PM)

Not a great deal to report. Jackie took her second IV antibiotic treatment of the day. She was able to walk about 1/4 of the distance to the hospital. She was not able to walk more than a few hundred feet upon return, however.

Her counts continue to move around. Her RBC count is 9.2. It has been as high as 9.8 after transplant. This is an improvement from yesterday. Her WBC count continues to decline. It was 1.3 today. It has been as high as 3.0 after transplant. Her platelets continue to hold well in light of the continued fevers. Platelets were 98.

Until later,

Bruce and Jackie

Note to anyone using Salina Spavinaw Telephone as their Internet service provider. I am not able to return emails to any .sstelco address. They are using some type of spam blocker and they think my emails are spam. I've tried to contact the people they are using to have the block removed and they treat my emails as, you guessed it, spam. I am, however, able to send emails throughout the rest of the US (and world). So if you are using sstelco you may want to consider a change if you experience email difficulties.

OK...if Jackie is mopping the floors and doing laundry I'm doubting the accuracy of her donor being MALE!!

Hi Jackie,

Sounds like a tougn period for you, but it's encouraging that your platelets are hanging in. We hope and expect that the fevers and blisters will soon be behind you.

Thinking of you,

Stan and Ruth
