The new cells are in me now.

Yesterday, the transplant of the new bone marrow cells finally completed at about 10:00 am. A total of about 9 hours. I was completely exhausted by the time it was finished. It was a tough feeling because I was so tired I couldn't sleep. I have been up all day and night with trips to the bathroom every hour for the past 2 days. However, I have been able to get some sleep in between. They tell me the mucositis should set in in the next couple of days. It is suppose to be rather painful and they will give me morophine. I have had lots of family and friends visit so that is helpful. Just taking one day at a time.

  1. Eric, it was so good to read your blog! We are all very grateful for the progress; and stand amazed at your genuine positive outlook. My gang will continue to uphold you in our thoughts and prayers, particularly over the next few days, that the pain will be manageable and you will be encouraged by your progress.
