T Minus 1 Day Til' Transplant

11/25/13 – With my second day of getting ATG I hit a bit of brick wall. It was probably the combination of the ATG and the Benadryl that really exhausted me.
Today I get my last dose of ATG and a dose of Rituximab. Being they both have Benadryl as part of the pre-meds I guess I will have another sleepy day.
Another huge part of today is that this is the day that the donor will be donating his stem cells. I do not know much about that wonderfully generous person, hopefully someday I will. What I do know is that the donor is a white male, who is 35 years old and has either lives or had lived in Europe. He is an 8 out of 10 match with the mismatches not being in areas of big concern.
I am just so grateful to my donor, and for that matter, anyone who is willing to help others with whatever they need. This generosity reminds me of a fantastic song my Matt Maher “Hold Us Together”. Here is a link to it, enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut0ENzQcjrM
Then the King will say, ‘For sure, I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of My brothers, you have done it to Me.’ Matthew 25:40-45
