Studying for his Finals

Wednesday marks the 1 year anniversary of Tyler's bone marrow transplant, so we have been invited back to SCCA for testing.  They prepared us for this during the preparation phase, explaining that transplant patients get tested for about a week at the 1 year mark.

We kick things off with a questionnaire detailing all of the possible symptoms that Tyler might be experiencing and a bone marrow aspiration on Monday.

On Tuesday, Tyler will get a Pulmonary Function test (to evaluate the health of his lungs), a dental exam (to look for signs of GVHD), and an eye test.

Wednesday is a quiet day, but he will get all of his vaccines on Thursday and evaluate his medications at that time.  I really hope that they decide he can taper off some of his current medications now that he is passing the critical 1 year mark.

Tyler has been studying hard so that he can pass all of his tests, but a little help from friends and family wouldn't hurt either!


  1. WE will be thinking of you and praying for you this week. Good Luck!

  2. I know your tests will be A+++. Hugs to you both....Charlotte
