Today is the big day! For all of the hell, through all of the tears, prayers, and sleepless nights it has finally arrived. My dad finished his chemo on Wednesday this week and by the end wasn't doing well at all. One of the side effects of chemo is vomiting and severe headaches and those symptoms plagued him for the two days that he received Cytoxin. On Thursday he got his last dose of that horrid poison and hopefully it will be the last dose he ever has to have. Today at ten in the morning he got the stem cells and things went quickly and fairly smoothly. He is on anti rejection medication and is feeling very good. The cells will begin to grow inside of his bones (bone marrow) and produce the right blood instead of cancer filled blood. If my dad doesn't have a reaction to the cells in a few days he will go to the transplant house. When he does move there I will be able to provide an address but until then the house wont accept mail. Thank you so much for your love and support. In this day and age we have medicine and we have experience in dealing with things like leukemia but the healing power that you have brought us has been such a gift.
