Day 0, this is it!!!

Well, the brothers stem cells are here and transplant will take place this morning.

It was scheduled for 2am last night but there was a delay for some reason.

But he is ready to go!! The melphalan really hasn’t kicked in yet but should by this weekend.  Also, the nurse said a fever is common when engraftment takes hold so we can expect that too.

They changed his room to a more isolated area with double entryways. But it really is a lovely room. It’s large with a table and 2 chairs, a lounge chair, and a lovely view. The windows are clean as opposed to the other room where the window was visibly dirty on the outside. UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_379.jpg

He still has his hair probably till next week when it will need to be shaved. But all in all, doing well.
