Quick Update

March 6th, 2012

Mom went through her stem cell transplant fairly well, and her recovery time was so good they sent us home a full week ahead of schedule! We got home on Saturday night, and mom’s now in relative isolation in the back family room addition. It’s a nice setup – it’s a very large open space, and she has her own bathroom, several couches and chairs, an eating table, a bed, etc.

I’m feeling like I’m run ragged right now, largely from all the, well… running around I’ve been doing for the past few weeks!

We go back to Loyola for an update tomorrow, and I’m expecting to see her numbers continuing to climb!

    Yay for your mom! My experience was similar, and I remember driving away from the hospital after that last doctor’s visit saying “It’s over! It’s all over!” with tears running down my face. Here’s to a great recovery, no setbacks and a wonderful time spent with her daughter!
