The family conference is so that caregivers and family will know what to expect after the chemo and transplant. Since the chemo will destroy most all of my cells, I'll be very immuno-compromised for quite awhile. They will return my stem cells shortly after the chemo ends, but it will take awhile for the cells to regenerate. From what I understand, I'll be weak and sick for awhile, but if things go as they have thus far, I will bounce back pretty quickly. I'm praying that my harvested stem cells are healthy and strong and will make lots more healthy and strong cells!
Thank you for your prayers.
