One year post transplant

Hello all,

My one year tests results we not awesome but not terrifying either. A combination of my PET scan, CT scan, and bone marrow byopsy suggest that I may not be out of the woods just yet. I had some mild activity show up on my PET scan and my bone marrow dropped 1% from my sister's cells. So, apparently I'm still battling this very unwanted pest they call cancer. We will begin by undergoing a DLI - Donor Lymphocyte Infusion which will hopefully put me back in remission. This procedure includes getting three doses of my sisiters lymphocytes intervenously over a three to four month period.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.
