The Plan

We met with Dr Slavin last night for a chat and exam. HSCT will go ahead!

They took some blood this morning. Tomorrow there’s nothing. Friday the picc line will be inserted. Saturday I’ll have the hip aspiration (they extract MSCs from the marrow and freeze them in case you want them down the road) and start two days of anti-lymphocyte drugs to start thinning out T-cells. Monday and Tuesday will be chemo to finish off my misbehaving immune system. Then Wednesday is day 0, I get my stemmies back!

Everyone at the clinic has been friendly and helpful. I am eager to get started.
