    Thank you Reggie. We are now on our 30th day post transplant and same with your dad, my husband underwent a RIC. The donor was her younger sister who matched 10/10. So far there has been no indication of GVHD and we are cautiously celebrating every step of his day by day improvement. He is still on saline and magnesium infusions to counteract any adverse reactions to tacrolimus (his antirejevtion med) but we are home. We are still waiting for the chimerism results. I am glad your dad’s health is on the mend.

    Hi Reggie. Good to hear your Dad is doing well. We went ahead and underwent the transplant. Hurray! The chimerism test came back 100% on the 28th day. The test will be repeated on the 56th day. I am so happy and relieved that the anticipated side effects did npt happen or were not as bad as i have googled.
