So, Abby is still cancer free and the bone marrow transplant is doing it's job. We won't have another test until about 1 year after transplant. So far so good!
Now that we have those results they will start to plan the removal of her secondary access port (her Broviac) and she'll probably be able to get that out in August. She is very excited about getting that out because then she can take a bath and actually go under the water again like everyone else. She's been a great sport but she definitely does miss swimming!
Overall Abby is doing good. A bit hungry from the steroid that she is on but hopefully they'll be able to take her off of those in a month or so too. They'll start to taper her off of her anti-rejection pills slowly and if all goes well she'll be off of that by November.
So, step by step she is moving back into the new normal world of life after a bone marrow transplant.
Thanks for all of your thoughts, prayers, notes and support you all are so great! Thank you and I'll try to write at least every couple weeks or when big news pops up.
