An update on Laura

Just in from my friend Laura's mom -

"FABULOUS news to report: Laura's bone marrow biopsy and aspiration of 2 weeks ago shows 'successful engraftment'! and reveals that '100% of T-cells are of donor origin'!! and that '100% of myeloid cells are of donor origin'!!! Peter's boys are now Laura's guys, and Laura's (invaded) gals are no more! (couldn't be better!) Furthermore, the DNA array shows no more presence of JH/BCL2 (the baddies)!! And 'no morphological evidence of lymphoma'!!! And her PET results were perfectly normal!"

This is awesome news indeed!!!! Unfortunately, she is still dealing with effects from the steroids being used to treat the Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD).

Thank you to those who have included Laura and her family in your prayers and have been sending her positive energy.
