I thought I would write my own update this time since I haven't spoken to many of you the past couple of weeks. Well, as you can tell by my counts it looks like my dad's cells are engrafting. I haven't gotten the official declaration from the doctor but things are looking good, finally. If everything works out ok my stem cells will essentially be my dad's, which is scary :). I already look like him, now I may have the same cells as him. Just kidding. Not only is he a great dad, he's my savior too!
The outpouring of support from all of you has been tremendous. I definitely know that I have a lot of people behind me and that helps more than you know. As you know, I'm out of the hospital and able to spend time with my family back at the apartment which is great for my mental health. The trips to the out-patient clinic are a bit monotonous...a lot of waiting...but at least I get to go home at the end of the day. Hopefully I'll be able to get a few days off a week when I start getting better. Then we'll be able to do more things to keep us busy (movies, driving...)
It's a long road to recovery, but with everyone's support I know I can do it. Thanks again and take care.
