It’s the Transplant News and I’m reporting to you LIVE from Bed 6 in the Hematology ward at Kings College Hospital. After a shaky start – and it was not fun – of powerful chemotherapy drugs, I’m finally ready to type again.
It has been weeks since my last post. But I was very ill. (I won’t describe that part since I still want people to read the blog without vomiting themselves.) But I have had my bone marrow transplant. I’m six days post now and so far I’ve had no repercussions. I feel very weak and I’m in some discomfort, but otherwise boredom is my main enemy.
The worst thing about my stay is that I can not see my two little monkeys. May and Ieuan are denied access due to the fact that little people carry lots of bacteria around with them and I have no immunities. My mom supplies my fix every day when she visits with videos and photos of them.
The good thing is that May and Ieuan have no idea what is going on, so they aren’t distraught. May is very happy and that is reassuring to me, locked up here in Bed 6.
I’ll update again when I can. Wish me luck in my recovery!
