On The Mend


Hi Folks, another restless night. Just to let you all know we finally seem to be getting on top of the GVHD via attacks on a number of fronts mainly using immuno suppressants to damp the Graft down thereby reducing the inflammation. Could go home next week fingers crossed. . Got to have Chrim yet with Grandaughter. My eye isn't fully functional but should recover. So just thought I'd let you know as had a few messages asking about progress, for which Tank you.

Cheers Chris xx

Good news Chris. Best thing I have read for weeks.

So good to hear from you Chris, I hope all goes well with you return home next week. Think of you loads. Keep us updated when you can. X

I'm laid up myself at the moment, slipped on the ice last Friday a broke my elbow. I have the most wonderful bruise from my knuckles to my armpit! My sister in law says it looks like I'm wearing one of those tattoo sleeves!

Take care buddy.

Oh Judy, you need to learn how to bounce you poor thing❄️😩 Hope you are not in too much pain, my son-in-law is covered in Tattoos very becoming, but he is a lovely man apart from that. I suppose the bruising is made worse by our conditions, I know when I had my Total Knee replacement last year my whole leg was black and blue for weeks. Anyway you take and stay in the warm.

Thanks Jean,

My GP explained today that our flesh is like the layers of a cracker and the blood seeps along the layers until it can go no further. In my case my knuckles. It's not as painful today, long slow recovery I guess.

Just make sure that you keep your hand moving, even if you just flex your fingers, will help once the bruising subsides.

Great news Chris, really hope you get to go home very soon.

Take care
