This is the bag of stem cells and red blood cells, over 1100 cc.'s. It was delayed because of the airport....so Ted got started at 4:40 am instead of 3:00 am. We do not know the donor. It was a 26 year old man, from Europe. We are so very grateful for his kindness. Males are preferred, ages 18 to 44 years.
Ted decided to just try to sleep. He had had five days of chemo and a radiation the day before.
He gives his "V"on to Victory sign. He has stayed positive which is truly helping.
I have to wear a mask and gloves while in the room...even sleeping in these. For I stay with him in his room.
This is his blood works. W=white cells really low now. H=hemoglobin really at a good number still. P=platelets, which is dropping . The drs. say Ted is on track and yet some think he is doing much better than most.
I came home for a couple days to do laundry, make household payments, pay the roofer as he did finish while I was gone. I took the longest hottest shower I could stand when I got home. Those G.I. baths are not enough. (baby wipes) I came home to spring . The crabapple has bloomed.
The flowering plum bush. too.
The neighbor's dogwood tree is so pretty. The apple and pear trees also.
My lilacs are the best they have ever been.
The little red Japanese maple looks good too. The skies are just wonderful the past three days.
Ted's son sent this picture to me. This is Ted today. Heath and his wife Nowal went to spend the day with Ted. The dr. told Ted today he was doing very well. He looks very good here. , he had just walked the halls. He has to wear a mask and gloves when he goes into the halls.
Thank you Nana Diana for your prayer requests. We are so very grateful to all who have prayed for Ted. You mean the world to us. Please keep helping us thru this . Thank you. XO
