Transplant #1 (Day 0)



In the hospital. Got my pre-medication to prevent allergic reaction to the preservative that is used for stem cells. My blood tests were taken, we waited a couple of hours and my beautiful 3.5 Million stem cells were delivered. It took all of 5 minutes to infuse them back into my veins. Tammy, my APN stayed with me during the process (I am including a picture of Tammy holding my stem cells).

Now we get to wait in the hospital for ~2-3 hours while my vitals are observed. After that we go home. It will take about 10 days for the stem cells to start doing their job.
