Posts Tagged ‘Mom Update

Mom had her third day hanging out at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance while they harvest her stem cells. She was a pro today and produced much more than they needed. She goes in the next three days to get her blood tested to make sure it goes back to normal after the stem cell ‘pumping’ drugs they have given her. Then we wait until October for the transplant. Mom has some pain from her meds, but other than that she is doing well!

Mom is having the stem cell harvest done today. I am praying for everything to go as smoothly as planned. And for Mon to be comfortable through the process.

Last week Mom started a long process to try to prolong her remission. The first phase is a stem cell harvest. They pump up her stem cells then harvest enough for two transfusions. This process will take most if this month. Then the transfusion should be in the fall. The first phase is not as worrisome as the second phase. But would love if she didn’t have to go through it at all. 😉
