Day -2

With transplants, Day 0 is the day you receive your stem cells, and then you count up from there.

We got down here to San An around 9 last night. We didn’t go to the store, we were too tired. Today, we were at the hospital at 8am, and got “home” around 4 or so. LONG day! Continue reading

I Can’t Sleep, So I’m Trying Something New

It’s been a long while since my nerves have kept me up at night. Oh, I lose sleep all the time, but generally, it is just a small and irritating side effect of my meds. This is nerves. The “induction phase” of my transplant starts next week. Continue reading
