My Bone Marrow Transplant

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

It happened;. clearly the first uptick was on Day +10, Christmas Day, after bumping along for several days at 0.02, it ticked up to 0.05, then 0.15 and today 0.25. The doctors had predicted Day +16 for engraftment onset but I have never been known for patience. The platelets are still low which is normal as new cell generation will switch to what is needed. It’s easier to give me Platelets.

I’m eating more and my mouth feels better but you have to gargle 13 times a day to keep it under control. I have still not had to take pain killers like Morphine although they are freely available. Sleep and night have no correlation.
