Mixed Chimerism

Jacob's first chimerism test result came back mixed. His various white blood cell counts range from 76% to 100% donor cells, which sounds good until you consider that his numbers were very similar last year and within months he had completely lost the graft. We will discuss the chimerism results with the team in the morning and see what they want to do. Please pray for the doctors to be inspired to make decisions that will be best for Jacob's long-term health and lifespan, and please pray for Jacob's body to accept the donor cells so he can finally be cured of CGD once and for all.
