He has leukemia, had a bone marrow transplant this summer and now the transplanted immune system and his body are at war with each other. Officially called graft vs. host disease. they believe he can be discharged in another week or 2 once they get everything back in balance.
That's tough under the best of circumstances. Almost 5 yrs ago DW went through an autologous stem cell transplant (her own). It took 6 weeks in hospital and almost a year more for her to recover. I'm assuming since there's an immune graft issues that your son had an allogeneic stem cell transplantation (donor). I remember the trials patients on the floor faced, as day after day as we did our daily walks during her recovery. Our prayers of strength and healing go out to your son and prayers of comfort to you and his mother.
