In clinic this morning, Xander and I ran into Dr. Yanik who commented how great Xander looks - he really likes Xander's hair. Dr. Yanik clearly stated that he agreed with wisdom of the time taken to bulid on Xander's health before this transplant. Emilie and I had talked about this often and I was able to convey our appreciation for the clearly defined paths that he layed out last April when the first transplant failed. It has been a comfort that we knew what treatments to expect along this pathway.

Well, as I write this, Susie (transfusion nurse) is finishing with Xander's platelet transfusion and is preparing him to go to the OR. I'll write more as I know it and take a few more pictures, too.

Thanks to everyone for your heartfelt support!
