Radiation starts tomorrow.

Tomorrow I go in for the first day of Total Body Radiation (TBI). 2 sessions - one at 8:00 am, then the other at 2:00 pm. Same schedule on Sunday and Monday. Then admission to the hospital on Tuesday for 2 days Chemo before the actual transplant which will be next Friday. They trained me today on using the infusion pump that I will carry in a backpack so I can give myself IV fluids for hydration at home during these 3 days. They also gave me 4 different kinds of nausea meds since radiation often causes nausea. I'll try to post again after radition and let everyone know how it goes.
