Arriving at 5am. Someone looks tired. The picture below will be our
"Before" picture, as in before the trains rolls in.
Now we'll start counting the days. We start at -5 and work our way to 0. Day 0 will be Kristen's bone marrow transplant and it will become her bone marrow birthday. The nurses and staff will all come in and sing and bring gifts to celebrate Kristen's new chance at life. We arrived here at the hospital at 5am this morning. Chemo started at 6am and will continue for 4 days. Kristen is on several medications to counteract the many side effects of the chemo and to prepare her for the transplant. We enjoyed the last few weeks at home. I can't say I accomplished much but I can say that I enjoyed being home and just living life. Kristen has done very well the past few weeks. She has gained a pound or two and the sparkle has returned to her eyes. I believe this added strength will help her in the coming weeks.
Thanks to all who have been praying for Kristen. I know this has helped her and will continue to sustain her over the next few weeks.
