Hi Ladies.

Today Joey is 97 days post BMT. the most dangerous part of BMT is the first 100 days... we are nearly there.

I am getting nervous about his engraftment studies coming up this friday. Now, I know he is engrafted (the donors marrow took over) however, I am worried that he might lose some of that engraftment. Can you please pray he is still 100% donor?

Also please pray his doctor signs the medical clearance for his Make A Wish? To us its more than just his wish being granted... its proof that he is medically stable enough to have this chance. Its proof that he will be a survivor.

Also, please pray for me. I am feeling lost, displaced in my own life. The past 2 yrs I have been totally consumed with Joey's battle. Its like my sole purpose for 2 yrs has been to save Joey's life. now that its coming to an end, I feel like I don't know what to do next. As medical appointments have dropped off and down to 1x a week, and life returns to normal I feel like I am displaced. Not only in the feeling of not knowing what to do, but my whole family and home changed in the 2 months I was gone during transplant and I feel displaced here. I am hoping with DH's return to work today it helps with that, but I could use some prayer. Also I have been diagnosed with PTSD

I am so glad that Joey is doing so well. It is continued source of praise.

It is also totally understandable what you are now experiencing. It is a huge life change. A good one, but a huge one. Rest some and try refocusing some of your energy into other things. Maybe start with something simple, find something you like to do. Maybe join a gym, or the PTA, or start scrapbooking with others. Give your self time to come around and find your new "normal".

Moving can be quite stressful. I always feel I am starting over at ground zero with my life. New house, new friends, new city to learn, new grocery store, new dentists to find, everything.

PTSD is understandable, you have been through a battle.
Here are a couple links that might help

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Symptoms, Treatment and Self-Help

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Causes, Symptoms, Treatment and Diagnosis by MedicineNet.com

Lots of (((HUGS))) and continued prayers.

(((((Traci))))) So many many prayers are being said for you and Joey (and your family). I've been having the prayer warriors at our church praying. We thank God often for the miracle of super JOEY.

With all that you've gone through and are going through, any number of emotions are completely justified! I can't even fathom....your strength (even when you are feeling your weakest) is truly an inspiration.

How is your older son doing today?

Covering you in prayer,
Dawn

David is at my moms and is still sleeping, he is still feeling icky. My mom reports he was up quite a bit last night and he has dark circles under his eyes so she is letting him sleep as long as he needs it. I feel "mom guilt" because my son is sick and in order to protect my other son I had to make a choice to send one to my moms. Because my moms is not set up for a toddler, much less one with a compromised immune system, I had to choose to send David to her house. He says he understands and likes being there, but the guilt of not being the one caring for him when he is sick furthers the feeling of displacement and guilt.
