I came across your blog as I was looking for more info on GVHD. My 8 year old daughter, Sara, was diagnosed with ALL on January 16, 2009.  On May 26, 2009 she received a stem cell transplant at MD Anderson.  She's been through so much (like you).  She also had Marigold as her physical therapist!  Sara has GVHD (rashes) and is on Tacro and Prednsione.  I have no idea how Sara feels and it is nice to read your blog to get some kind of idea what you two go through.  Hope all is well!
