HelloIv been playing nintendo ds with a friend. Nintendogs.Heres the update.Im still in hospital. Bin having physio to try and get mobile! I have
some exercises i can do in bed now. Which is good.Skin seems to be ok, flakey and dry.Liver blood results were getting better, but one has gone wrong way for
couple of days?
Dr not sure why? But blood results fluxuate (spelling)One reason maybe is that they have found a virus in my ...... Poo poo,
stole........ What ever you wana call it.
Can effect liver, kidney, lungs.
But they've found it in such a small amount that they dont know if its
doing anything. Iv started a drug to kill it today.Dont really know about bowel coz hasn't been scanned for few days.I saw the dietician, she guna find out what the best foods to eat are
for me. (So i can get some weight on)And they are going to try track down some more mesenchymal stem cells
!!!!!! That would be fab!!!!!!
Coz then i get more chance of them working!!!!
Sweet. Please please please ..... I hope they do.I have more info on how they are made and stuff.
(I was wrong before)When someone has a stem cell harvist its put in a jar. When all the stem
cells die left behind are mesenchymal stem cell, a very primative cell.When injected into someone it seems to find damaged tissue, then turn
into that tissue (obviously not damaged)
With GVHD they do something even better.... GVHD is caused by a type of
white blood cell (the T-cell) attacking the organ. When mesenchymal stem
cells bump into the T-cell attcking the organ they let off a chemical
that shuts down the T-cell. They then turn into the tissue like i said
earlier.
So you get double action.Hehe i sound like a mens razor advert.Oh and the best thing is.... You dont have to be a tissue match!!!!!!
Hammersmith royal infirmary do the stuff. Is that in london???So everyone please !!! I want some more !!!!!!!
Hehe your cells will become part of my bowel.
