Day 7 in Boston

Today is Monday, it will be 1 wk tomorrow that John has been in BW Hospital. He has been so extremely lucky he has not been sick,sick. He did have a touch of the "poopies", and threw up 3x's. The doctor
came in this afternoon and told John he is doing extremely well taking into consideration the amount of chemo he has had. He told him he looks better than some of his patients.

John's stem cells will be reinfused tomorrow, and Wed. because he had so many cells harvested they need to put them all back in. His first infusion will start at noon tomorrow, another one at 4 pm, and then on Wed he will have his last one at 4pm. His recovery process will start from there....he may have all good days or a mix of a couple of bad and the remainder good. The doctor and nurses stated the same..."everyone is different", each body reacts differently to the medication and the reinfusion process. Since John has done so well so far, he may not have a bad ride. The doctor said to John "ride it out", he is doing great.

The scary part is gone for the most part, now we just need to wait it out after the reinfusion is  done.
It will be a waiting process from here on out...there is a light at that end of this dark tunnel...I knew it! I am keep the faith, praying and holding strong...14 days and counting......
