Day +9

I had some good news today.  My white count doubled!  It went from 0.1 to 0.2.  Progress is being made.

I need platelets and potassium today, so I’m going to get hooked up and I’ll write more later.

Joyce is in treatment area B, too, but she’s in a room by herself.  I think that’s meant to protect us all from the icky stem cell smell.  My new nickname for her is “stinky.”

    That smell is really nasty, if you’re not nauseous, it’s bound to get you there. Good luck with your blodcells!

    You’re our hero Beth, blazing the trail that many of us will follow (kicking and screaming perhaps). You are doing it with such grace and resolve. I’m so proud of you. May those white cells come cascading back for you.

    Thanks for keeping us posted.
