It is Day +100. What does that mean? Well, it is kind of complicated and a little anti-climatic but it is a big milestone for Kenyon. It is amazing that 100 of days have passed. It hasn't been great but definitely not as bad as it could have been. We have been blessed. I would love to have a big party -but not the greatest plan because he still needs to be very careful about germs.
We don't have our 100 day conference with the doctor until the 14th of Oct. when all the test results are back in. But, the main idea is that if Kenyon didn't have any GVHD (graft vs host disease) before day 100 then the chances of GVHD after are less. He really did quite well without major complications during the last 100 days. It also means that he begins to taper off his meds. We hope that he will feel lots better as he gets rid of the number of pills he swallows each day.
He still struggles with some nausea but his appetite is much better and seems to be putting weight back on. His hair is growing back.
The warning is that while he is feeling better each day - he is still on immuno-suppressent drugs. That means - he really needs to be careful - still. That is mostly a problem in large groups or around anyone who is sick.
We are looking forward to him being back to 100%. In the meantime, we are also counting down the days to the baby coming. 34 days!! That kind of freaks me out. Time to get serious about this. I am absolutely not ready. It is panic time.
The kids and I were excited to finally finish the Book of Mormon this morning. Don't ask us how long it took us. I read to the kids every morning over breakfast. Sometimes it is a chapter and other days we get in a few verses. But we made it!! We talked about Moroni 10 this morning and Teague said, "Every time we read the scriptures my testimony gets stronger." Love it!
