It has been quite the week!! We had the transplant the morning of the 23rd and it is( for those who have been thru an SCT) fairly uneventful. Even anti-climatic except it is the beginning of a new life which is pretty monumental. But it is just a drip for however many hours. Mine was very short ( an auto) B’s was almost 4 hours!!
Well, we are now on day +2 and he’s been in for 9 days. So soon he will go down to WBC of 0 and then it’s a waiting game. At this point is when you start to feel awful, no appetite, diarrhea, and absolutely NO energy. Because his is an allo, the risk of infection and graft vs host is much more present.
Today I’m going down with my son and then tomorrow I’ll take my brother if B is up for it. He said he was starting to not feel great so visitors are usually the last thing you want.
On a different note, I’m working on taking a few things out of the bedroom and closet. I have some empty bins I need to put in the laundry room and I wanted to move a plant to a different spot. I’d like to take out the suitcase I have a plant on but I’m not sure where I’d put it. It has mementos for both of my children like wood toys and other things.
I’ll just have to look at it more closely. I thought I’d like to mount the wood crate on the wall and then that would eliminate the need for the suitcase which the wood crate is on top of. That has a plant and a salt lamp on it.
It’s cloudy again today and cool. Tomorrow it’s suppose to rain:( again.
