    Re: Newly Diagnosed

    Understandable that you'd feel that way. It is overwhelming at first, hard to get the right information on the disease and its treatment. You have come to the right place to find info, support and...

    Re: Transplant

    Well, I wish it was more of an improvement, but agree that it is worth being happy about in the face of all the previous ups and downs. I guess it's just going to be that way for awhile. Thanks for...

    I'm sorry you had to repeat about your son's headaches, as I didn't show adequate sympathy for that. It must be disheartening to have him not sounding very good on the phone. Headaches are troubling...
