After last week’s drop in blast counts to 4%, I was so happy and hopeful that it will reduce further this week.
Unfortunately, the numbers shot up to 29%.
This calls for Plan B, which is to re-transplant using my sister’s haematopoietic stem cells. The transplant is likely to be scheduled in two to three weeks time. The following week will do another bone marrow biopsy and pre-transplant checks (vision, heart, lung, kidney & liver function, dental and etc.)
Knowing my condition well, this day will come eventually.
In any case, I am very contented with the quality time I had for the past 7 weeks.
There is still a glimmer of hope that GVHD (stimulated by DLI) will take place within this two weeks. Then, perhaps, I may not need a transplant.
