Well its been a while since i've posted any updates, its been a rocky road the last month or so. The transplant has been succesful so far with a 90% donor cell population. I have been batteling graft vs host disease of the gut which kept me hospitalized longer than expected,they have been treating me with high doses of steroids to help. I had a few weeks where my blood counts were extremely low, bone marrow looked good but blood cells not coming out which put me at a high risk for infection. Finally after weeks of not seeing much change and dr.s with not much explanation, and alot of worry,doubt,anxiety, the good Lord took the reins,things turned around in the right path. I was discharged on wednesday but have every other day visits for a few weeks so they can watch me close. Still a long way to go to full recovery but hope to return to Montana mid july. Thank you everyone for all the prayers and support,
Jeff

Today is six days post transplant. I have been doing very well so far. Side effects have been minimal, mainly fatigue and a little nausea and headache. Today my blood counts started to rise which means the new stem cells could be starting to graph. I'v been able to get out of my room and walk around the facility. Thankyou for all the caring support!

I am raising money for travel expenses to National Institute of Health in Maryland. There is a Dr. in Maryland that is very interested in treating me. I have MDS and have been fighting a sinus infection for almost 1 year. The Dr.'s that have been studying our family have found another gene mutation that is most likely the reason I have been stuggling with infections. As most of you know I have been hospitalized twice for infections. The last one just about got me. The Dr.'s at the NIH have told us that they will treat me for free. The only thing they ask is if I pay for the first Travel & Lodging expenses. Every visit there after will be covered by them. This is truely a blessing!

When we go for our appointment in Maryland we are going to be discussing and most likely planning for a bone marrow transplant.
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated! I will make sure that Amber keeps facebook updated. Thank you for all for your prayers and support!


The money collected will go towards Plane tickets for myself and Amber, Lodging, meals, & Rental car.

Hi Amber: We are following your journey. I'm so sorry that you and your family have to go through this trial. But praise God for his provision for medical treatment. That is truly a modern day miracle. Just know that you are loved and prayed for daily. We think about you all day long, and pray that God will use this time to bring you closer to HIm. Lay your requests at his feet and wait expectantly. He loves you and Jeff more than you can ever imagine. We love you too. Janet and Jim Wagoner

From Martha (Gutierrez) Smallwood on the FB post I shared- Hey not sure if I remember Jeff Wagoner or if he even knows who i am ... but bethesda is not far from me so if you want to pass on my info if they need anything like ride to and from airports or even directions... or whatever they might need while here... anything to help a fellow bishopite.... Jeff, If you'd like her info email me at delaniebell@msn.com She is Mario and Salomon, Jr. Gutierrez' sister and my best friend in high school.
