Stem Cell Harvest Day 2 of Cycle 2 – September 7 2011

I drove myself to the University of Colorado Hospital this morning for my 2nd Day of stem cell harvest in this second attempt to get better stem cells for transplant. When I arrived, I found out that I yielded 5.28 million stem cells yesterday which is quite good.
My blood revealed that I was more anemic than ever this morning with a Hemoglobin of 7.8, so they decided to give me 2 units of A+ Positive blood. First, Martin, RN had to give me 2 bags of magnesium, because my magnesium was low too. I’ve never had a blood transfusion before ever – so, this was new to me. Their protocol at UCH is to give Benadryl and Tylenol
