This is the Biography of me, Alexander Salsitz (I prefer Xander). I am a 13 year old boy who's life changed in January 2012 when I was diagnosed with MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome). I have had 3 bone marrow transplants since then, the most recent one in April 2013. This blog documents my journey, beginning with my diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing recovery.

Ouch or "Hello Apoptosis"
Xander woke up shouting last night with excruciating bone pain in his legs. He received his first dose of pain meds. Emilie read him a fairy tale and he was able to go back to sleep.
I'm sorry to hear this. Maybe, Xan, you can spray it with WD-40! :-}ReplyDelete
I tried to call all day but you guys were busy doing other stuff. Perhaps we can FaceTime on Sunday.
CC had a dream about you last night, Xan, that you had returned to class. It will be soon enough. Great pictures Xan! We are thinking about you every day (and sometimes while sleeping too!ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry you woke up in so much pain the other night. I hope last night was better, and that the pain is under control. You are a strong kid.
We all love you and are praying for a smooth road for you and continued strength to get you over any bumps that may come up.
prayers to you all,
Margo and family
