Happy Thanksgiving

11/28/13 – Yesterday I was up at the crack of dawn to start preparing for my big transplant day. I guess the process of preparing the stem cells took a little longer than I thought it would be because the infusion of the stem cell started at 3:05PM. By 4:00PM it was done. During the infusion I seemed to handle everything well but once it was done I did have the chills pretty bad. In addition, I am extremely tired. The nurses told me that this is to be expected that I will be like this for a few days. Also, I have no appetite whatsoever.
With today being Thanksgiving, my wife and daughters will be coming to the hospital with some holiday foods. I’ll try my best to taste what they bring but I have to be careful I do not cause myself to have an upset stomach. I am sure no matter what I eat that this will be a great day. Anytime you are with the people you love it’s a great day.
I truly have so much to be thankful for. I have the best family ever, fantastic friends and so many people who care for me. Also, I have this new exciting opportunity with my stem cell transplant.
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.Psalm 106:1 
More to come…
