Very latest news and it's good

The preliminary biopsy report shows about 5-10% involvement, with both a nodular and diffuse pattern. The chimerism was basically "host" both in the total and the T cell. This is good news. A miraculous disappearance of all the cancer would have been better, but I'll take this in a heartbeat. The CLL is not gone, but it is not taking off either. It's moving nice and slow, so so can I. Final results on Monday.

Not sure what "basically host" means and what the implications are in terms of using the same donor or finding a new one for a second transplant.

But there is no rush now to figure this out.

Either way, looks like the CLL is not forcing my hand. Except for the ITP, I wouldn't have much to worry about. If the ITP continues to stay controlled with only IVIG and clean living, I am on cruise control. Sweet.
