It's Good News Week by Hedgehoppers Anonymous (this time without the irony)

DNA results (revised)  drawn on day 14+

Neutrophils 100% donor
Monocytes 100% old me
T cells 66% donor

Translation: I am beginning to engraft!

The immunophenotyping results (apparently it wasn't lost)

No clonal or malignant B cells 

Translation: No CLL ( leukemia) found in my blood stream.

NUFF SAID.
