Things are going great for me. There are still little blips now and then,
but I feel fantastic and have lots of energy.
I had a bad reaction from some codeine for a cough related to a sinus
infection (I seem to be allergic to it) and that put a strain on me and
kicked my GVHD into action. I will be on prednisone until October to
get it back in check. Other than a round face I don't have any side
effects and am continuing on with my active life.
I am enjoying playing with all my grandchildren and getting back to my
machine embroidery and many other crafts.
I have to stay away from digging in my garden until I am off the
prednisone. This drug is an immune suppressant and that means I
could get an infection easier than normal. I still enjoying watering and
dead heading all my flowers. There will be plenty of time to dig in the
dirt after I am off prednisone.
My recovery is truly a miracle to me and my family. I am now over four
and a half years from diagnosis and transplant and I am back on track
with my life.
Best wishes to all,
