ENGRAFTMENT CAME

Posted Dec 05 2009 7:45am
Yesterday on day 21 my numbers reached engraftment levels, so I got official notice the donor cells are working and en grafting into my body. My numbers continue to improve, today my white blood count is up to 1.0 and my anc is 600, in disease fighting stages again. I am set to go home tomorrow day 23, yesterday they started switching all my iv's to pills, its a lot of pills but I am getting them down, only thing doc said to me today is to drink more, i did not do a good job of that lately and she wants me drinking more before they release me. Could be later afternoon by the time all the parities that need to discharge you come by, so today and tomorrow till i go will pass slow.

I am so thrilled to know that all of this hard work and rough days were for good reason, and that my body is making healthy cells. I can not wait to get home and see my family when I want to, I am sure I am going to make up for the lack of sleep I have had here, and hopefully I will be able to start eating again at home, nothing here is least bit appealing.

Thanks for everyone who helped pull me through these rough weeks, it has made it easier to keep going on.
