New Birthday






Hello Everyone, Well last night, Sally got a new Birthday. After expectating the cells to get there around 8:30, they finally appeared around midnight. The Nurses brought in three I.V. bags and attached them to the pump. Thats it. Pretty amazing that rebuilding one's bone marrow which supports all your cells in your body is all done by connecting a hose. It took about 4-5 hours to infuse the three bags. Sally and I slept through most of it. Included are a few pics of the process and a video of the i.v. line with the blood reaching her port. It was somewhat anticlimatic but amazing to see the process of ones's new life. The evening did have the feeling of a new born baby appeared in this world. Sally is resting as am I.
P.S. The Hannah Montana window magnet was from me.
Take care all.
