Did you notice the change in my blog?

This blog started with my plans for a transplant to save me from an incurable cancer, CLL. 

It was to be a toxic canon blast to wipe out my leukemia, yet somehow I also managed to reject the graft. During the process my CLL was laid low at worst, and wiped clean at best. No graft versus host, so likely no graft versus leukemia- just a killer single course of a chemo-immunological cocktail (FCR).

I have some gut nodes that may be growing, but I am doing my best to starve them out with my raw vegan ways, and I am exploring some options other than watching and waiting, both alternative and very edgy Western.

In some ways, it is as if my transplant never happened, so now I am really dealing more with my history with CLL (may it rest in peace).

Hence the new name: Brian Koffman's Awesome Transplant and CLL Adventure.
