Day +365 - Happy 1 year birthday Schmoul!🎂🎊🎈🎁🎉💙

Unbelievably a year has gone by since Schmoul received his new stem cells. Today we signed the paperwork so Schmoul can receive the contact information of his donor. His now 22 year old lifesaver has indicated that he wanted contact with Schmoul. Needless to say, Schmoul is very excited. 

As for Schmoul’s current condition, there seems to be improvement. His cough has just about disappeared and his skin is much better. He has been on a new drug regime and they are lowering his steroid to 40 mg. He continues to have a lot of problems with his eyes and neuropathy in his feet but our hope is these will become more manageable as time goes on. 

Dr. T told us today that the blood cancer is long gone and it is doubtful he will have a relapse. Praise Howard!  It has been a tough journey but we believe that we are on the coasting side of the hill. We continue to be in awe of all our wonderful friends and family who have supported us in so many ways. We are blessed!
