    Hi, everyone. I just wanted to reintroduce myself and wish everyone a happy holiday. I haven’t participated in this list for quite a while.

    I had a double-cord blood transplant in April 06 at Fred Hutchinson for a bad-prognosis case of secondary MDS. I engrafted 100 percent, and there was no sign of the disease this summer at my last bone marrow biopsy. Since then, I’ve been dealing with some fairly bad graph-versus-host disease but I am fortunately able to still work part-time and feel fine a decent part of of most weeks.

    Happy to answer questions anyone has about my transplant and experience although I’m not 1/10 as knowledgeable as many of you about MDS!

    Wishing you all well!

    Simon Hang in there with the GvHD. A tiny bit of it might be OK keeping everything else in check. Great to see that you can work some of the time! Willie

    Hi Simon, I remember you from the BMT Chat Room. Glad to hear you are doing well (relatively speaking.) Congrats on doing a double cord transplant. May I ask your age?
