Email: I'm Free! (Day 17+)

Just wanted to let you all know that I am out of the hospital and on the mend. I still to get I still go to the clinic for 6 hours everyday for fluids and to make sure my system is rebuilding itself. So far so good except I can’t seem to start eating and drinking on my own. I know that is hard for many of you to believe, I myself have a hard time imagining myself not being able to eat but it is true J. Today is day +17 (17 days since my transplant) and everyday I feel a bit better. All of your emails and calls are amazing as you might imagine I am really BORED but super excited that football season is here something new to watch on TV J.

Email: Released on Good Behavior (Day 11+)

Today is day +11, which means it has been 11 days since my transplant. I just met with the Dr. this morning and since I haven’t had a fever in 24 hours and my blood counts are on the mend I will probably go home on Thursday, as long as I stay on my best behavior. Of course getting cleared to go home really means I am cleared to go home and to the clinic everyday BUT it is better than being in the hospital. Around day +20 they will probably let me switch to every other day at the clinic and weekends off! Day +50 (September 22nd) is when I will be able to re-join society! J - not that I am counting.

Thank you guys for your emails and calls, as you can imagine it is hard to keep yourself entertained here.
Can’t wait to see you all!

5 days and counting

I am still stuck in the hospital because of mouth sores and fever. It is not too bad here. I am on the transplant isolation floor so alot of the people I see everyeday at the clinic are here as well. My mom has been hanging with me during the days, basically we just sit around while they pump different meds into me all day. All and all it is boring but I have my very own pain pump so it is not too bad :)

Email: Hospital Food (Day 7+)

Hello everyone ~

Just wanted to send you all a quick note and let you know that I am in the hospital. They admitted me on Wednesday 08/08/06 and think I will be here for about
a week. The main reason I am here is because of mouth and throat sores,
which make it almost impossible for me to eat or drink. The good news is
that I am in the hospital and not eating or drinking their food is a blessing
:) I am doing well just sleeping a lot. I haven' t been able to
answer the phone b/c my voice is a little raw at the moment but thanks for all
the calls.

Today is day +7 which means only 43 days left until I get out of the bubble.

Have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon,
