We are going home!!!
Wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow! Tomorrow we are finally going home! We got the green light from Sue at Day Hospital, and from Dr. Claxton. I haven't been this elated in, well, I don't know how long.
John's GVH rash made a dramatic improvement, which is the main reason why he is allowed to go home. He will get his last IV treatment for it this coming Thursday. He will still have to take oral meds for the GVHD for a long time, however, to keep it in check. But his GVH is improving dramatically!
Oh, John will still be receiving treatment at Day Hospital one day a week. We will have to drive up. It will be two and a half hours each way! These will make for long days, but it will be worth it, because it will allow us to stay in our own home. The first trip back here to Hershey will be this Thursday. John will go to Day Hospital in the morning. He also has an appointment in the afternoon to see Dr. Claxton. And to get one of those yucky bone marrow biopsies. It will be his seventh!
Oh, I want to tell you all something before I forget! John got his second Mixed Chimerism test back. His immune system is 95% donor! That is INCREDIBLE!!!
Well I better run, I gotta get to packing! Love, Krissy :)
