Today: T+42

The past 10 days have flown … and i am pleased to say its because we have been having a great time!! The Graft Versus Host Disease, so far, is responding to high dose steroid treatment and the rash has gone. It comes back  a little bit now and then but applying steroid cream seems to calm it down. The treatment started at 2mg per kilo (seth’s weight) of Methalpred. He is now on 1.5mg per kilo which will be reviewed again in the consultant meeting on Tuesday. HHV6 Seth has been on treatment for Human Herpes Virus 6, which is a drug called Foscarnate. He tested positive for this and the level was 10 to the 5 in his blood. A week later he is now 10 to the 3. So it is improving. Another positive thing is that he has had no temperatures and he has not been symptomatic with it. Immunology The doctors are happy with his immune system so far. He still needs to be kept away from busy places and children. But we are able to take him to the park everyday and he went to the local museum during the week. Which he loved as there were Dinosaurs and fish like Nemo.

    I am so happy he is still doing better and that he got to the museum and to the park… a life outside the hospital is so wonderful. You can see it in his eyes. Beautiful pics. Lots of positive thoughts sent your way. Take care.

    He looks so good!!! I love the photo with Daddy. And his little hand that I can see looks so much better. How is the food tolerance? Still eating a couple of crisps here and there or is he back on Garlic Bread yet? I am counting down the days till your family can be in your OWN home and back in a real family routine. Hugs and Love from South Dakota, USA.

    It is so great that he seems to be doing better and is able to get out and about. He looks so happy to be at the museum with his dad. I remember when my 20 year old would light up like that.
    Best wishes for continued good news.
