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.

Wednesday +21 (3:15 PM)

Jackie continues to feel badly. In spite of good blood counts she has no energy. She has slept a good part of the day. She is unable to eat anything and she has fairly intense pain in her back and front mid-line stomach area. In my opinion it may be the start of some GvHD in the GI tract. Of course I'm not a doctor. I only play one on a blog on the Internet.

They are going to do a CT scan at 7:00 in the morning. Maybe it will give some type of indication as to what the problem might be. If it is GvHD that won't show up in the scan, however.

She continues to do well and doesn't have any serious fevers. Her eyes seem to be much better and her rash is also better. Even her hearing seems to be improving.

Her blood counts have improved once again. Her RBC count is 10.4 - about the same as yesterday. Her WBC count has moved up to 2.0 from 1.7 yesterday. Her platelets dropped a bit to 101, but this is still good for her.

We return tonight at 9:00 PM for the third daily antibiotics treatment.

Until later,

Bruce and Jackie
From Rochester, MN
