They sent me home with oxygen, which I hope is only a temporary thing. I don't use it all the time, just when I get short of breath. They also sent a bedside commode, which may come in handy in the days and weeks to come. I've had no graft vs. host disease yet, but that will be the next thing. The nurse said it could be any time from day 22 after the transplant up until day 100, and sometimes it never happens at all. My doctor said it's a good thing to have a little bit of it, though. It makes the immune system stronger. I am at day 20 after transplant now.
I'll be going into the BMT clinic every day for awhile for labs and to get transfusions, IV medications, etc. They will keep a very close eye on everything.
I have a big bag of meds I need to go through and organize so that I'm taking what I'm supposed to when I'm supposed to. It's so hard to keep track of all of that.
I'm not neutropenic right now. My white counts and platelets are good, but my red blood cells are down a bit. I'll probably get blood tomorrow.
Reece and the girls were delighted to see me, and I was happy to see them, too. Reece just held me and held me. He wasn't saying a word, just loving me. It was so sweet and precious. He wanted to see my "bald hair," and thought it looked cute. I love the way he likes to rub my head. He got a haircut, too, while I was gone, and looks adorable.
I'll keep you updated! Thank you all so much for your prayers and love.
