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.

Thursday +387

Just a quick note to update the blog for anyone still following Jackie's progress....

Jackie continues to do well. She just passed one of the first true tests of her constitution after the transplant - she caught a cold! She had the sniffles and some chest congestion just like everyone else; and she cleared the cold in about 5 days - like everybody else.

Her blood counts continue to do well. Essentially all the counts are within normal ranges. The few fractional portions of the CBC are only slightly out of range. She continues to reduce medication. She is still taking more steroids than we would like, but they are being slowly tapered. Her appetite has come roaring back. She is hitting the home gym for 1 hour-per-day workouts.

We return to the Mayo Clinic in late May for a checkup. If all is well we will be headed back to Nantucket for the summer. For those who know us and for those who have followed the blog since the beginning you will remember that Jackie first "crashed" 2 years ago while on Nantucket. We haven't been back since. We are certainly looking forward to the return.

Until later....
