The mother of a boy with leukaemia says he is feeling “well” three weeks after a stem cell transplant.
A stem cell match was found for five-year-old Oscar Saxelby-Lee after about 5,000 people joined a donor register.
Olivia Saxelby said her son was treated for a virus after the transplant and had “a couple of tough weeks” but was up and “jumping on daddy” on Sunday.
Doctors told her he could return to his Worcester home at the end of July if he continued to do well, she added.
Ms Saxelby, who had not expected him to come home until October, said they need to adapt the house as Oscar needs to be in an isolated area to avoid the risk of infection for about 18 months.
“He will be able to go out in the garden I’m sure – we will make things happen for him but we have got to be really cautious,” she said.
