Transplant Minus 3 Days


In three days I will shift my leukemia recovery to another level, with the bone marrow transplant. So, for the past week I’ve been in another round of chemotherapy, and today that shifted from taking 88 pills every 6 hours, to IV injection. Add to that all the accompanying medicines to prevent nausea, liver damage, kidney damage, bladder damage, and the like.

And, of course, this has been accompanied by awesome support from the team here at Northside, called BMTGA. As you can imagine, I’ve gotten to know them quite well over these last 3 months, and I can’t imagine working with a better bunch.

So now, I just wait for the chemo to do it’s thing, and reduce my marrow to nothing, so we can add the marrow from the donor. And then, the real fun begins.
