Welcome to my CaringBridge website. 4/22/18 - Today was the 1st half of my chemo, and will get the rest tomorrow afternoon. This will wipe out my entire immune system. The transplant will take place on Tuesday, and only occurs once. This is considered day zero. It begins at 5:30 in the morning with 4 hours of IV, 1 1/2 hours of transplant, and another 4 hours of IV, so about a 10 hour day. Each day I need to go back for blood work and evaluation. The side effects will begin around day 4, or next Saturday. I appreciate your support, encouragement, and prayers. Thank you for visiting!
