Hi Folks , , many of you will be aware of my Stem Cell Transplant for Primary Myelofibrosis which happened 5 years ago today. . It wasn't an easy ride in my case and my battle with Graft Versus Host Disease is well documented on the Forum. Also the issues caused by high dose steroids needed to save my liver, namely Diabetes (now gone) , Cataracts (lasered) , Water retention (gone) and Osteoporosis (tablets).
So I would just like to take this opportunity to once again THANK those of you who supported me throughout and helped to get me where I am today. Although I tried to smile through there were times when I could of given up were it not for the kind words and encouragement freely given here. 👍
Also I would like to say that although I appreciate the Transplant route isn't for everyone I would like to say to those who might be considering it now or in the future please don't give up hope.
I am living proof that sometimes miracles do happen. Since my SCT I have a further 4 Grandkids with another due early next year. . Well worth all the battles to pull through.
I have attached a pic of a few of my faces over the past 5 years, some were too scary.
