Post Transplant (Week 14)

Post Transplant (Week 14)

*(Days +90- +96) Monday-Sunday, (August 9th-15th) turned out to be a hectic week. I took a break from blogging so that I could focus on getting better. Here’s a summary of the week. Not too much excitement: *Monday-Friday: Spent recovering and sleeping. Fevers off and on for a few days. […]

Post Transplant (Week 13)

*(Day +83), Monday, (August 2nd) was painful. I was so sore from the spinal tap so I basically just took a bunch of pain meds and slept all day. Nothing really exciting. I don’t remember much of this day because I was so out of it. *(Day +84),Tuesday, (August 3rd) […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 12)

Post Transplant (Week 12)

*(Day +76), Monday, (July 26th) was a pretty routine day. In the morning I had to go to the BMT clinic for blood work. I spent most of the day relaxing and watching TV. Lately I’ve been craving weird things and I happened to be craving taco bell so we […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 11)

Post Transplant (Week 11)

*(Day +70), Tuesday, (July 20th) was a pretty uneventful day. I had to go to the BMT clinic in the morning to get platelets. While I was in clinic I finally met another patient who is around my age. We had been talking on facebook but she didn’t get out of […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 10)

Post Transplant (Week 10)

(Day +62), Monday, (July 12th) has been another great day. I had an appointment at clinic this morning at 10 a.m. just to get some labs drawn and meet with Dina, a nurse practitioner. Afterwards we came back to the house and ate lunch outside because the weather was so beautiful. […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 9)

Post Transplant (Week 9)

*(Day +55), Monday, (July 5th) was not a very good day. Turns out I have meningitis and pneumonia. They’ve put me on antibiotics to fight it but I’m nervous about both. I haven’t had any more fevers so I’m hoping that means the antibiotics are working. I’ve also started gaining water […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 8)

Post Transplant (Week 8)

*(Day +48), Monday, (June 28th) was like it never happened. I woke up long enough to swallow pills and eat at some point. Still battling fevers, muscle pains, stomach pains and a killer headache. The only excitement was me waking up in the middle of the night to throw up […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 7)

Post Transplant (Week 7)

*(Day +41), Monday, (June 21st) and (Day +42), Tuesday, (June 22nd) are both a blur. Couldn’t really tell you what happened because I was knocked out on pain meds. I pretty much only woke up to go to the bathroom, eat and take pills. I don’t even remember what I ate or who my nurses […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 6)

Post Transplant (Week 6)

*(Day +34), Monday, (June 14th), was another good day. It’s been raining all week so my mood has been a little drowsier and sleepier. I just haven’t been as active or online. Hence the reason for the late blogging. Good news, My white blood cell count hit .9. My cells […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 5)

Post Transplant (Week 5)

*(Day +27), Monday, (June 7th), has been a great and mundane day. I fell asleep around 2 last night but slept surprisingly well during the night. They didn’t give me any medicine to pee during the night and had my fluids running at a lower rate so I only had […]

 

Post Transplant (Week 4)

Post Transplant (Week 4)

*(Day +20), Monday, (May 31st), is a great day! I was woken up this morning around 6 a.m. by my nurse who told me that my counts had just come back and my white blood cell count had finally jumped from .1 to .2! This is good news because it […]

 

Post-Transplant (Week 3)

Post-Transplant (Week 3)

*(Day +13), Monday, (May 24th), was a nice day. I woke up around 8 and ate some pop tarts and watched some TV. I got my usual morning platelet transfusion around noon and then tried to nap a little bit but couldn’t really get comfortable. My legs started to swell […]
